"Border guards were forced to defend themselves because no reaction followed to peaceful persuasion to stop the unlawful actions. As a result, when all attempts were exhausted to settle the situation without the use of force, after a verbal warning and a warning shot, the border patrol used their service weapons, targeting legs of one of the offenders," the report said.

It is noted that one of the attackers was wounded.

He was taken to the hospital and provided primary medical treatment.
