Tensions rise in southern Israel: Additional Iron Dome batteries deployed
BREAKING: The IDF deployed additional Iron Dome missile defense batteries in southern Israel as preparation for a possible escalation and rocket attacks from Gaza.
Earlier today, IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Kohavi toured the Gaza border and held a meeting regarding the recent infiltration attempts with all Battalion commanders in the Gaza area.
In addition, Kohavi praised the men and women who stopped two major terror infiltrations from Gaza over the weekend.
“Your job is to protect Israel’s borders and Israel’s citizens and that is what you did here… with great success, due to a quick assessment, precise use of weapons, a correct solution, fighting spirit and determination,” — Lt. Gen. Kohavi, said.
The IDF foiled early Saturday morning a major attack by Muslim terrorists from Gaza who attempted to invade Israeli in order to murder Jews.
Once one of the terrorists crossed into Israel in the Kissufim area, IDF troops opened fire and eliminated four of them.
The terrorists were armed with RPG launchers, AK-47s rifles, hand grenades, and rocket-propelled grenades -one of which was thrown.
In addition, they carried wire cutters to cut through the security border fence in order to invade Israel and murder Jews.
Earlier today, an armed Muslim terrorist from Gaza approached the border fence with Israel and opened fire at IDF troops, who responded with fire, eliminating him.
