CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Egyptian soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian man on Wednesday by a smuggling tunnel near Rafah, Egyptian security sources said.

Egyptian border guards spotted two people exiting a tunnel near Rafah and opened fire, injuring one man in the abdomen.

Muhammad Izzat Abd al-Aziz, 22, later died in an Egyptian hospital in el-Arish.

The other man managed to escape.

Security sources said al-Aziz may have been attempting to smuggle African migrants into Israel from Egypt.

Until the July 2013 ouster of democratically-elected Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, tunnels connecting Gaza to Egypt provided a vital lifeline for the territory amidst the otherwise crippling Israeli blockade, which has been in place since 2007.

Since the coup, however, Egypt has strictly enforced the blockade and targeted the tunnels, with military sources estimating that more than 95 percent have been destroyed.

Al Sisi is a "SISSY" when it comes to his masters in the Zionist entity "Israel". He's capable of stooping so low to his Zionist & American masters. They're paying him very well so why does he wants to care about worthless Palestinian lives.
