Egyptians open fire on Palestinians

8 hours ago

Egyptian border guards have opened fire on Palestinians who breached
the border to escape Israel's assault on Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

An Egyptian security official said there were at least five breaches
along the nine-mile border and hundreds of Palestinian residents were
pouring in.

At least 300 Egyptian border guards have been rushed to the area to
reseal the border, the official added on condition on anonymity
because he was not authorised to speak to the press.

A resident of the Gaza Strip side of the border, Fida Kishta, said
that Egyptian border guards opened fire to drive back the

Residents have also commandeered a bulldozer to open new breaches.

Palestinians reported several people were wounded by the gunfire.

Israeli aircraft earlier bombed the border area in an apparent attempt
to destroy cross border tunnels used to smuggle weapons and contraband
into the Gaza Strip.

Dr Abdel Qader Higazi, a representative of the Egyptian Doctor's
Syndicate in Rafah said Egyptian authorities closed the border
crossing after allowing several trucks of medical supplies into Gaza.
