Security forces on Monday shot and moderately wounded three foreigners who were trying to illegally cross into Israel from Egypt.

A number of the foreigners fled back across the Egyptian border, some were detained and the injured were given medical assistance.

According to security forces, the foreigners failed to turn back when instructed to and some of them were armed and returned fire when the IDF attempted to arrest them.

Unlike many instances in which such foreigners are of African origin, some of these foreigners were of Chinese origin.
