IDF Thwarts Attempt to Fire RPG at Forces in the Northern Gaza Strip, 12 Sept 2010

A short while ago, IDF soldiers identifed a number of suspects attempting to fire an RPG in their direction. The soldiers returned fire towards the suspects, who were apparently hit.

Earlier today, IDF soldiers identifed a number of suspects approaching the security fence in the same area. The force fired warning shots at the suspects’ general direction.

In addition, two projectiles apparently landed in the same area.

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