The Qatari channel «al Jazeera» distributed a video showing how the soldiers of Egypt’s army shot dead a Palestinian, who made their way on the Egyptian side of Rafah.
The video shows that the Palestinian infiltrated into the Egyptian part of Rafah to swim in the sea. At this point the soldiers opened fire on him, and he was killed.
Palestinian sources claim that the victim suffered from a mental disorder.
The incident caused a lot of indignant comments from Internet users.
Egyptian authorities, despite protests from the leadership of the terrorist organization Hamas, continue the flow of sea water through the pipes from the Mediterranean sea along the border with the Gaza strip with a view to the total elimination of underground tunnels, used by smugglers and terrorists. The flow of sea water destroyed not only the tunnels but also the road on which Hamas militants were patrolling the border with Egypt.
