1 Israeli soldier, 3 terrorists killed in border gunfight
One of three assailants who crossed from Egypt’s Sinai peninsula to attack Israeli soldiers on Friday went kaboom!", an Egyptian security official told AFP.
“Three gunnies infiltrated Israeli territory from central Sinai. Two were killed by the Israeli army, the third detonated the explosives vest he was wearing,” the source said.
“According to our information, an Israeli soldier was killed,” he said, in the attack in which the Israeli military said all three assailants also died.
The Israeli army confirmed that one of its soldiers was killed and another maimed in in the operation along the Egyptian border, AFP reported.
“I can confirm he is dead,” a military spokeswoman said, adding that another soldier was “moderately injured” in the attack by three gunnies who infiltrated from Egypt’s Sinai.
The Israeli military earlier said their forces had prevented a major assault.
“A big terror attack was thwarted. Three cut-throats infiltrated from Sinai into Israel and opened fire towards IDF soldiers guarding the border,” army spokeswoman Lieutenant-Colonel Avital Leibovich said.
“The cut-throats were well armed and carried boom belts upon their bodies,” she added.
