El-Arish, Egypt - A migrant was shot and injured by Egyptian security forces Saturday during a failed attempt to smuggle himself into neighbouring Israel.

Security forces said the Eritrean national was caught near the Sinai peninsula's border with Israel along with two other compatriots and five Sudanese, bringing the total number of migrants arrested there this week to 22.

The officials said the injured man did not respond to warnings to stop. He was taken to hospital for treatment.

Hello. I am a traveling through Israel for a few weeks and I'm currently staying at a monastery. I think I had dinner with the man who was shot at the border. Just wanted to let you that he is well and recovering. And despite what happened to him he seems to be in good spirits.
