Hamas terror group is leading a terrorist operation under the cover of the masses throughout the security border fence between Israel and Gaza, ahead of the opening ceremony for the new US embassy in Jerusalem and Nakba Day.
According to Hamas’ declarations and IDF intelligence, Hamas ultimately intends to carry out terror attacks, including a mass infiltration.
Around 40,000 Muslim terrorists are currently assembled along the security fence and thousands more are approximately 0.3 miles away from the security fence. IDF troops are operating in accordance with standard procedures, including by opening fire at main instigators.
60 Muslim terrorists were shot and eliminated and hundreds wounded Monday morning after violent riots erupted along the Gaza border.
Most terrorists gathered in the northern area facing Kibbutz Nahal Oz and they are burning tires, throwing rocks and attempting to breach the security border fence and infiltrate into Israel in order to murder Jews.
Overnight, IDF troops operated along the security fence in order to destroy Hamas infrastructure, which was intended to be used as forward operating bases for terrorist activity today and tomorrow. The operation was a defined and precise effort.
The IDF is prepared for a variety of scenarios. IDF commanders are present in the field and are conducting situation assessments. The IDF will act forcefully against any terrorist activity and will operate to prevent attacks against Israelis.
