Smugglers Cut Border Fence

For the first time, Egyptian smugglers managed to cut through the border fence in southern Israel. The smugglers entered the country, but were quickly caught by IDF soldiers.

The fence is under construction in an attempt to slow illegal entry to Israel, guard against Gaza terrorists who infiltrate from the Sinai desert, and stop drugs smuggling from Egypt.
