IDF soldiers thwarted an attempted terrorist attack in Gush Katif in the south Gaza Strip last night, October 5th, 2001. At night, a number of Anti-tank shrapnel grenades were launched at an IDF post on the border fence surrounding Gush Katif. An IDF force in the area identified two armed terrorists firing at the post, as they approach the fence. The force shot at them and identified a hit. The IDF soldiers’ activity prevented possible harm to Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers.
