Terrorists from the Gaza Strip have launched multiple attacks on the Israel-Egypt border area. An Israeli civilian was killed in one such attack on June 18, 2012.
In a joint IDF (Zahal)-ISA operation, IAF aircraft targeted a Global Jihad-affiliated terrorist squad in the southern Gaza Strip.
One of the terrorists, Ahmed Sai’d Isma’il, resident of Tufach, was among those responsible for the execution of the terror attack adjacent to the Israel-Egypt border, in which an Israeli civilian was killed, on June 18, 2012.
Over the past number of weeks, Achmed Sai’d as well as E’id Nadi Ucaal, resident of Rafah, in addition to several other Global Jihad members were operating in order to execute a terror attack against Israeli civilians via the Israel-Egypt border.
The IDF (Zahal) will not tolerate any attempt by terrorist groups to target Israeli civilians and IDF (Zahal) soldiers, and will continue to operatewith strength and determination against those who use terror against the State of Israel.
