‘Likely stray’ Gaza rocket wounds Egyptian soldier

A rocket probably fired from the Gaza Strip hit Egypt’s Rafah Border Crossing with the coastal enclave, wounding a soldier, a security official reports.

The rocket “was most likely fired from Gaza and fell into Egyptian territory by mistake,” the official says.

The incident comes on the heels of an attack by gunmen in western Egypt that left 21 Egyptian soldiers dead.
