BREAKING: One dead after Egyptian Army opes fire on IDF near Rafah

It’s just being reported that Egyptian soldiers fired upon IDF soldiers a few minutes ago near Rafah. As a result one Egyptian soldier is dead.

Here’s more from JPOST:

Israeli and Egyptian forces exchanged fire near Rafah on Monday, with sources in the IDF saying Egyptian soldiers fired at Israeli soldiers who returned fire, according to Maariv. An Egyptian soldier was killed in the exchange of fire.

After the incident, IDF officials made contact with Egyptian officials to cease the fire. No Israeli soldiers were injured in the incident.

The IDF said that the incident was under investigation and that a dialogue was taking place with the Egyptians.

I’ve seen reports that more Egyptian soldiers were injured but I can’t confirm that. Whatever happened, I’m glad Egypt stopped attacking and a dialogue has begun. The last thing Israel needs right now is a war with Egypt.
