CAIRO (Ma’an) --  Egyptian authorities on Saturday arrested seven African migrants trying to cross the borders into Israel without proper documentation from the central Sinai Peninsula, according to Egyptians security sources.

Sources told Ma’an that seven people were stopped trying to pass through the barbed-wired border fence.

The suspects were identified as seven men from Sudan, and were taken for questioning where they reportedly admitted they were trying to cross into Israel without proper documents. 

The men also told interrogators that they paid human smugglers in the Sinai around $3,000 each in return for helping them pass the border fence.

The security source added that 701 African migrants were caught trying to cross into Israel without proper documentation through the Sinai in the last two months. 

Nine of the migrants were shot dead by the Egyptian security forces.
