ISRAEL (TPS) – Israeli Defense Force (IDF) troops identified two terrorists in the Gaza Strip who were planting an explosive device next to the security fence with Israel on Sunday morning..
The soldiers opened fire at the terrorists, and “a hit was identified,” an IDF spokesperson stated.
The two terrorists were probably killed, the IDF said, and no Israeli troops were injured in the incident.
This is the latest in almost-daily terrorism-related incidents on the border with Gaza.
On Wednesday, February 19, Islamic Jihad snipers fired from Gaza at IDF troops inside Israel. An Israeli Special Forces unit responded by targeting and returning fire at the sniper squad responsible for the attack.
