IDF soldiers operating near the Egyptian border in the Eilat area fired at two suspects carrying suspicious objects toward the border fence from the Sinai Peninsula on Thursday.

One of the suspects was struck in the stomach by the gunfire and transferred to Yoseftal Hosptial in Eilat for treatment.

An initial investigation into the incident found that it was not terror related, but rather an attempt to smuggle drugs into Israel.
