SHARM AL-SHEIK (Ma’an) -- Egyptian military sources said Monday that Egypt had detained a former Israeli officer who entered the country illegally.

Andre Pshenichnikov, 24, was taken for investigation after he tried to sneak across the border, the military sources said.

Pshenichnikov told the military he is affiliated to a pro-Palestinian group. A former sergeant in the Israeli army, he was living in a refugee camp in Bethlehem in 2012 when he was arrested by Palestinian Authority security forces and transferred to Israeli custody.
