Eyad al-Bozzom said in an official statement emailed to reporters that a security incident happened early on Thursday at the borderline between southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah and Egypt, Xinhua new agency reported.
“An interior border security force stopped two persons who approached the borders with Egypt, then one of them blew himself up, where he was killed and the other was wounded,” said al-Bozzom.
He added that one of the force’s security officers was seriously wounded and was taken to a hospital for urgent medical treatment. Medical sources said that a border security forces officer died of his wounds and five others moderately injured.
