IDF soldier lightly wounded by gunfire from Sinai

An Israeli soldier was lightly injured when an army vehicle traveling along the border with Egypt came under fire early Monday morning, the army said.

The soldier was taken to the Soroka Medical Center in Beer Sheva for treatment.

It is believed that the shooting was apparently a stray gunfire that resulted from internal fighting between ISIS and the Egyptian army in the Sinai.

Last month, terrorists opened fire from the Sinai Peninsula towards an IDF force that was engaged in operational activity near the security fence along the Egyptian border.

Two weeks prior, two rockets were fired from the Sinai area into southern Israel.
