Government to begin arresting and deporting South Sudanese migrants next week • Interior Minister Eli Yishai orders Population and Immigration Authority to start imprisoning any new illegal migrants who enter the country • Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch warns: "A million Sudanese and Eritrean migrants are making their way to Israel."
Security forces on Monday shot and moderately wounded three foreigners who were trying to illegally cross into Israel from Egypt.
A number of the foreigners fled back across the Egyptian border, some were detained and the injured were given medical assistance.
According to security forces, the foreigners failed to turn back when instructed to and some of them were armed and returned fire when the IDF attempted to arrest them.
Unlike many instances in which such foreigners are of African origin, some of these foreigners were of Chinese origin.
MAGAV is stationed on the unfinished section of the border fence and equipped with non-deadly means such as rubber bullets and tear gas.
That smells BS, a huge onesome of them were armed and returned fire
Illegal migrant are never armed, that would be a too great risk for the smugglers (it is easier to beat, rape, abuse unarmed crowd)
If fire was returned, it was certainly that some smugglers were there
Or fire was never returned and it is a PR cheap excuse

Looks like Mordoror jumped the gun a bit too quickly.
THESSALONIKI, Greece (AP) — Greek police say a shootout between smugglers of illegal immigrants and Greek authorities on the Greek-Turkish border has left two of the smugglers wounded.
As for being a myth. Well, let's say that a couple of Albanian guys have at least the lives of hundred of chinese on their counscience. It is no myth. Especially since most of the time they are sequestred until the very last moment of departure.
Protesters attack Israeli of Ethiopian origin in rally against African migrants
Dozens in south Tel Aviv call for the deportation of African migrant workers; ‘the black presence is intimidating,” says victim.

An Israeli citizen of Ethiopian origin was assaulted Wednesday evening in Tel Aviv during a demonstration calling for the deportation of African immigrants, just a week following the violent protest in Hatikva neighborhood.
Dozens of protesters gathered on Wednesday near the central bus station in south Tel Aviv demanding the deportation of African migrants from Israel.
The protesters were calling “leftists are traitors” and holding up signs saying “south Tel Aviv, not South Sudan.” The right-winged activist Baruch Marzel said that they hope to hold demonstrations on a daily basis, adding that they will not stay quiet “until the Prime Minister and the Foreign and Interior Ministers will start to act, rather than talk.”
Idiots... classic mob mentality.
Also having a reptile like Marzel take a lead in these protests is damaging for their cause.
thats terrible news, I had this discussion all they long on facebook, a real shame
