Following the firing of four mortar shells today by the Palestinians at Kibbutz Kfar Aza, located in Israeli territory, the IDF destroyed a post of the Palestinian Police east of Beit Hanun, that was identified as the source of the mortar shell fire. The post was destroyed for security reasons that were designated to remove the threat of mortar shell firing into areas of civilian population. With the completion of the mission, the IDF withdrew from the area.
