Three Israeli soliders killed in gun battle with Egyptian police officer


Israel’s military says a gunbattle involving an Egyptian police officer in southern Israel along the Egyptian border has left three soldiers dead

It was a rare instance of deadly violence along the frontier. The army said Saturday that the officer was in Israeli territory when he killed two soldiers during a drug-smuggling attempt. Their bodies were found hours later. The army said the attacker was killed in another shootout in which a third solider was also killed. Troops were searching for other possible assailants. The attacker infiltrated from Egypt. Israel and Egypt signed a peace agreement in 1979 and maintain close security ties. Fighting along their shared border is rare.
