A short while ago, IDF (Zahal) soldiers targeted a terrorist squad that was planting an explosive device near the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip. Hits were confirmed.
Gazan terrorists prepare to launch rockets toward Israel
The squad was targeted by IAF aircraft, Armored Corps and Infantry soldiers. This is the second attempt to attack Israeli civilians from the Gaza Strip in the last 12 hours.
The IDF (Zahal) will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
