The head of a regional council bordering Egypt says some residents are concerned about guard posts on the other side of the fence, after an Egyptian policeman entered Israel and killed three soldiers yesterday.

“We have residents living some 200 meters from an Egyptian post that is manned by soldiers and police officers. An incident like that raises serious concerns for them,” Ramat Hanegev Regional Council Eran Doron tells Army Radio, apparently referring to residents of the town of Kadesh Barnea.
