Approximately an hour ago, IAF aircraft targeted a terrorist squad of snipers that was operating adjacent to the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip. A hit was confirmed.
The squad is one of those responsible for the latest sniping incidents along the security fence in the Gaza Strip, including the incident in which terrorists fired at an Israeli farmer near Kibbutz Nir Oz on Thursday, June 14, 2012.
The IDF (Zahal) will not tolerate any attempt by terrorist groups to target Israeli civilians and IDF (Zahal) soldiers, and will continue to operate against those who use terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
