A short while ago, IDF soldiers came under fire during routine activity adjacent to the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip, causing damage to their vehicle.
In response to the fire, IDF soldiers targeted the terrorist squad aided by IAF aircraft. A direct hit was confirmed.
Terror organizations in the Gaza Strip persist in their attempt to harm Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers. The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for maintaining the calm in the Gaza Strip and for any terrorist activity emanating from it.
