TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Egyptian forces accidentally fired at an Israeli army jeep on Friday at the border near Eilat, the Israeli news site Ynet reported.

Egyptian border guards opened fire at migrants trying to enter Israel illegally and fired on Israeli soldiers operating in the area, Ynet reported.

Initially, Israeli army officials believed smugglers had fired on the soldiers, but it later became apparent that Egyptian soldiers were responsible, the report said.

One female migrant was lightly injured but no soldiers were hurt, Ynet reported, adding that Israeli forces had detained the migrants.
