3 Israeli soldiers, Egyptian officer killed in gunbattle at the border

Source: AP

JERUSALEM (AP) A gunbattle involving an Egyptian border guard in southern Israel along the border left three Israeli soldiers and the Egyptian officer dead Saturday, officials said. It was a rare instance of deadly violence along the frontier.

Lt. Col. Richard Hecht, an Israeli army spokesperson, said the fighting began overnight when soldiers thwarted a drug-smuggling attempt across the border.

He said several hours later, two soldiers in a guard post were shot and killed. Their bodies were found after the shooting, when they did not respond to radio communications.

Hecht said the killings appeared to be connected to the thwarted drug smuggling attempt. The army said the Egyptian border guard was killed in a second exchange of fire in which a third Israeli soldier was killed.

2. OK, I really don't understand what happened and why it happened. Maybe more details will emerge.

3. My "watches too much TV" mind goes directly to them all being involved in

Some shady business together and something went bad. I have nothing to base that on, but it's easier to think that rather than thinking some innocent people were killed for just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

4. I agree that it seems there was some skullduggery involved. Maybe the Egyptian border guard was

working with the drug smugglers, or maybe he is a radical who just wanted too kill some Israelis.
