IDF chief praises troops who eliminated 5 Muslim terrorists on the Gaza border
On a tour of the Gaza border today, IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. 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.
