Israelis Accidentally Cross Egyptian Border

Two Israelis accidentally crossed the border with Egypt on Tuesday night. The two entered Egypt near the Nahal Shlomo area. They were found and questioned by Egyptian security forces, and then returned to Israel.

There is no security fence along the Israeli-Egyptian border, and in many places the border is completely unmarked. Several Israeli hikers have accidentally entered Egypt in the past year, and dozens of terrorists from the Gaza region have attempted to infiltrate Jewish towns via the border.
