Police kill 15 trying to cross border into Israel

Monday 16th November 2015

EGYPTIAN police killed 15 Sudanese refugees trying to cross the border into Israel yesterday and wounded eight more.

Police opened fire on the migrants after they ignored warning shots and sprinted toward the border fence in the north of the Sinai Peninsula.

Most of the wounded were in serious condition after they suffered wounds to the chest and stomach.

The incident took place at a crossing about 12 miles south of Rafah on the border with the Israeli-occupied Gaza Strip.

It was also the deadliest incident involving Sudanese citizens since the 2005 clearance of a Cairo refugee camp.

There are more than 45,000 African refugees in Israel, including many from Sudan.

The government claims they are economic migrants whose growing numbers threaten the country’s Jewish character.
