BREAKING: Overnight, an IAF aircraft targeted an armed Muslim terrorist adjacent to the security border fence in northern Gaza.
“The IDF will not allow any harm to the security of Israeli civilians and will continue to operate against terrorists who are involved in acts of terror”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
Four hours after the IDF announced it had targeted the Muslim terrorist, rescue services in Gaza said that a body had been removed from the scene east of the Zeitoun neighborhood.
The Health Ministry in Gaza officially confirmed shortly after that a man had been killed in the attack, but did not immediately release his details.
The attempted infiltration into Israel is the latest episode in a wave of violence since the Hamas terror group sent tens of thousands of Gazans to stage a so-called march of return last Friday.
The Hamas-sponsored riots are due to end on May 15, the day Arabs call the “Nakba” or “Catastrophe”, marking the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.
The IDF said Saturday that at least ten Gazans out of the 16 eliminated by Israeli gunfire on the Gaza border Friday were known terrorists, eight of which were members of Hamas terror group, which said earlier that day only five of which were its members.
A spokesman for PA chairman Abbas’ Fatah says 14 of the Muslim terrorists eliminated while trying to attack Israeli territory, were Fatah members, trying to outscore. By that he admits that none were peaceful protesters.
Meanwhile in Gaza, some 10,000 tires have been collected to set ablaze and throw at the security border fence during the Hamas-sponsored planned riots for next Friday after mosque.
Terror-fans in Gaza are posting on social media instructions of methods to prepare and launch ‘peaceful’ firebombs and collecting mirrors to blind IDF troops so terrorists can damage the security fence, infiltrate into Israel and kill Jews.
