IDF Patrol Comes Under Fire on Gaza Border

IDF soldiers patrolling the border fence with Gaza came under terrorist gunfire on Friday afternoon, in an attack that took place at the border in the central area of Gaza.

No one was wounded in the gunfire, which took place across the border from the Bureij “refugee camp,” not far from the Israeli town of Kissufim.


Bullet damage was located on the windshield of an IDF bulldozer that was stationed over the border for engineering work, indicating an apparent Gaza sniper attack.

The attack comes the same Friday that both Hamas and Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction declared as a “Day of Rage”.

It was reported this week that Israel is intending to speed up plans to build a massive fence along the border with Gaza, similar to the one existing along the Israeli-Egyptian border.
