The IDF identified Beduin smugglers on the southern border trying to infiltrate Israel from Egypt, and a firefight erupted between the two sides on Wednesday night. No IDF soldiers were injured in the clash.

The two smugglers attempting to penetrate the border into Israel were identified by an IDF force who, according to regulations, fired at their legs.

Although details of the incident were not immediately clear by press time, a second firefight between the Beduin smugglers and Egyptian security forces also apparently developed, reportedly killing two Egyptian policemen.
