Israeli Army: Man Wounded by Gunfire from Egypt

Tuesday, 25 October 2016 10:06 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says an Israeli man has been shot and wounded by gunfire emanating from neighboring Egypt.

The military provided no further details about Tuesday's incident. Israeli Army Radio said the man was shot while working on a border fence Israel is erecting along the frontier with Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

Israel and Egypt signed a peace treaty in 1979 and the border between the two countries is generally quiet. Across the frontier in Sinai, Egypt's security forces are battling an Islamic militant insurgency.

In Egypt, witnesses said there had been a shootout between gunmen and security forces near the border, suggesting the gunfire was spillover and not aimed at the Israeli man. There was no immediate confirmation by Egyptian officials.
