The IDF located two explosive devices placed by Muslim terrorists who infiltrated Israel through the security border fence with northern Gaza.
Earlier, soldiers monitoring closed circuit cameras spotted the three Muslim terrorists as they broke through the border, and then later crossed back into Gaza, the IDF said.
An IDF tank opened fire at them, according to Arab media.
IDF troops located two explosive devices placed by the terrorists at the scene.
“The IDF views with great severity any attempt to damage the security fence or security infrastructure and will not allow the region to become a combat zone. Hamas is responsible for all events originating from the Gaza Strip and its consequences,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
On Sunday afternoon, following the infiltration, IDF soldiers identified a Gazan who crossed the security fence into Israel in the Shaar HaNegev area.
The soldiers arrested the unarmed Arab near the crossing point and he was transferred to security forces for further questioning.
