2 bombs detonated against IDF patrol near security border fence with Gaza – IDF retaliates
According to Arab sources, another two observation posts and a position in northern Gaza were targeted.
“In response, we attacked five targets in Gaza. We don’t know who is responsible for the attack. We will act sharply against attempts to turn the protesters into a cover for terror activities.”
The explosions took place close to an area in which hundreds of Muslim terrorists have staged numerous Friday-after-mosque riots between Shuja’iyya and Kibbutz Nahal Oz.
The IDF launched an investigation into whether the bombs were once again planted by the rioters.
It is the second time that explosives have been used by Muslim terrorists to harm Israelis on the border in one month.
In February, two soldiers were seriously wounded and two others moderately and lightly wounded when an explosive device was set off near an IDF patrol around the border fence in the southern Gaza Strip, opposite the Ein HaShlosha kibbutz.
