The photo was taken by photographer Amir Cohen on June 18, 2012.
On June 18, 2012, militants crossed Egypt's Sinai Peninsula into southern Israel and launched an attack on civilians who were involved in constructing a border security fence, according to defense officials.
The militants opened fire, resulting in the death of one Israeli worker. In response, Israeli troops engaged in a gun battle with the assailants, resulting in the death of two attackers.
