A second Egyptian soldier dies after succumbing to wounds suffered in yesterday’s shooting incident across the Gaza-Egypt border, according to the Hezbollah-aligned Lebanese Al Mayadeen outlet.

Citing Egyptian media, the outlet names the soldier as Islam Ibrahim Abdel Razek.

However the Egyptian Al-Qahera news outlet later disputes the claim, saying it is untrue.
