The bodies of three terrorists killed by the IDF in a shootout on the Israeli-Egyptian border Friday were transferred overnight to Egyptian authorities and taken to a hospital in El Arish, in northern Sinai.

Private Netanel Yahalomi (posthumously promoted to rank of corporal) was shot in head during the exchange of fire and later succumbed to his wounds. Another Israeli soldier was also wounded and taken to Soroka medical center, where his condition was reported as “moderate” on Saturday morning.

Tribal elders and other local residents in northern Sinai were updated regarding the transfer, reported Ynet, and were asked by Egyptian security forces to help identify the bodies, and to provide information regarding how the terrorists arrived at the border.
