IDF fires at 4 Muslim terrorists who infiltrated into Israel – 1 terrorist eliminated, 1 critically wounded
BREAKING: A Muslim terrorist was shot and eliminated and another terrorist was critically wounded after attempting to infiltrate into Israeli territory near the Sinai town of Rafah in southern Gaza.
IDF troops fired towards four Muslim terrorists who crossed the security border fence, infiltrated into Israel from the southern Gaza, and attempted to set an unmanned military post on fire.
The terrorists crossed the security fence equipped with cutters and combustible materials before attempting to light an unmanned snipers’ post on fire. IDF troops spotted the infiltration, monitored the incident and pursued the terrorists while firing towards them.
As a result, one terrorist was eliminated while another was evacuated for medical treatment. A third terrorist was transferred to security forces for further questioning.
The Gaza health ministry reported a fourth terrorist who fled back to Gaza. The 16-year-old was shot in the shoulder. He was taken to a hospital in Gaza for treatment.
During the infiltration attempt, the troops reported hearing shots fired towards them. No IDF injuries were reported. The troops operated swiftly to prevent the threat to Israeli sovereignty and the attempt to damage security infrastructure.
“Hamas is accountable for all events transpiring within the Gaza Strip and emanating from it and is responsible for all attempts to cross the security fence and damage security infrastructure. The IDF views these events with great severity and will continue to respond appropriately”, the IDF Spokesman’s Unit said in a statement.
The IDF is holding the carcass of one of the terrorists.
