Early this morning, the IDF removed a Force 17 post near the Gani Tal settlement in Gush Katif.

The post served for the past several months as a source for Palestinian fire towards Israeli settlements nearby and toward IDF soldiers.

The shots fired from the post included anti-tank weapons, machine gun fire and light weapons fire.

The removal of the post was done due to the rise in number of firing incidents directed toward an IDF post in the region, during the recent weekend.
