Human Traffickers Kill Egyptian Officer Near Israel Border

Human traffickers shot and killed an Egyptian officer on Thursday near the El-Arish border with Israel, Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported, citing security sources.

The Egyptian officer, Islam Ahmad Ramadan Saed, 21, stationed south of the Kerem Shalom crossing, confronted the traffickers, who were trying to smuggle African migrants into Israel, and they shot him in the chest, killing him instantly, Egyptian security officials told Ma’an. The smugglers and the migrants fled after the shooting, the officials said.
