IDF troops on Sunday evening arrested several people illegally crossing Israel's southern border with Egypt. The soldiers opened fire on the suspects after calls to stop were ignored. Two suspects were wounded during the ensuing arrests. A search revealed bags of drugs in the suspects' possession, and the detainees were transferred for interrogation.
