An Israeli army vehicle traveling along the border with Egypt came under fire early Monday morning. No soldiers were reported injured.
The unarmored vehicle was struck in the windshield by three bullets while driving between Nitzana and Mount Harif, opposite Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.
The IDF was investigating whether the incident was caused by stray gunfire or a deliberate attack, Channel 2 reported.
Sinai-based Islamic State-affiliated gunmen attack Egyptian security forces in the restive Sinai Peninsula on a regular basis.
In 2013, a 400 kilometer (245 mile) Israel-Egypt border fence was completed at an estimated cost of NIS 1.6 billion ($400 million), making it one of the largest construction projects in Israel’s history.
