An Israeli citizen and at least one terrorist were killed in an attack on the Egyptian border on Monday, Army Radio said.

An explosive device was detonated where workers were building a border fence, killing one workman. IDF soldiers shot and killed at least one of the terrorists who infiltrated the border, according to Army Radio.

An IDF spokeswoman confirmed there was a clash, but gave no further details. It was not immediately clear if the gunmen crossed through from Egypt or from the southern Gaza Strip.
