Terror Attack Thwarted Along Gaza Security Fence

Two Palestinian terrorists were identified infiltrating into Israel from the southern Gaza Strip earlier this morning. The soldiers on the scene exchanged fire with the gunmen, during which both infiltrators were killed.

No injuries or damage were caused to IDF soldiers.

GOC Southern Command, Maj. Gen. Yoav Galant and the Commander of the Gaza Division, Brig. Gen. Eyal Eisenberg arrived on the scene in order to understand the circumstances surrounding the infiltration.

It should be noted that in the vicinity there are a number of communities containing thousands of Israelis, such as Kissufim, Ein HaShlosha, Nirim and Nir Oz.

The IDF remains commited to protecting the citizens of Israel and will continue to act against terror. The IDF holds Hamas solely responsible for terror emenating from the Gaza Strip .
