"Shots have been fired at [Israeli Defense Forces] IDF on the border with Egypt," spokesman Peter Lerner tweeted.
The attackers fired guns and an anti-tank missile at the Israelis, the military said in a statement.
"Two soldiers were injured by fire directed at them from Egypt," it added, without naming the attackers.
The report did not provide details on the attackers' identities or the seriousness of the injuries sustained by the soldiers.
Egyptian security sources said Egyptian forces later clashed with several gunmen who had likely attacked the Israeli border patrol. No casualties were reported in the confrontation, and there was no immediate comment from the Egyptian military.
The Israeli Yedioth Ahronot daily said the Israeli army has dispatched more troops to the area.
