Ariel Sharon have apologised for Israeli soldiers attacking a six-member Egyptian border patrol at the Egyptian side of the border. They were all wearing Egyptian army uniforms, and three of them got killed. A tank fired at them from less than 20 meters away.

From: Israel apologises for Egyptian deaths

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has offered his apologies to the Egyptian government after Israeli forces killed three soldiers on the Egyptian side of the border. Speaking to President Husni Mubarak by telephone on Thursday, Sharon said no soldier would ever intend to fire into Egypt.

Egypt reacted by condemning and strongly protesting against the incident, calling it an "irresponsible" act along the Gaza-Egypt border. Husain Abd al-Ghani said the tank was less than 20 metres away from the patrol when it opened fire and that all six men were in Egyptian army uniform.

"The Egyptian foreign ministry has demanded an explanation and underlined the fact that the incident represents a grave violation of Egyptian-Israeli peace agreements,"

The Egyptians are quite mad about this. I can perfectly understand why. What is going on? Do the Israelis want a war? The Egyptians are demanding an explaination for this.

All Israel is doing is attack everyone, kill innocent ones, and then when someone fights back they go to Bush and cry on his shoulder for protection, and as soon as they get it they go and attack someone else...
