Rafah border crossing – gunfight between Egyptians and Israelis


On Monday, there was apparently a firefight between the Israeli and Egyptian armies near the Rafah border crossing. At least one death is said to have occurred.

The Israeli military said the incident was being investigated and talks were being held with the neighboring country. According to Israeli media, an Egyptian soldier was also killed in the incident at the Rafah border crossing in the Gaza Strip.

An official confirmation from Egypt was delayed. The background is currently unclear. It would be the first dead soldier on the Egyptian side since the start of the Gaza war in early October.

The situation at the border with Egypt has become increasingly serious recently. Israeli forces advanced there three weeks ago, taking control of the Rafah crossing on the Palestinian side, as well as a border strip between Egypt and Gaza.
