IDF thwarts terror attack, neutralizes bomb planted by Muslim terrorists near the Gaza border
The IDF neutralized a bomb located near the security border fence in southern Gaza on Thursday.
“The terror squad that planted the bomb had plans to attack IDF soldiers and disrupt the activity of the forces operating in the area,” the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement.
“The planting of the explosive device, conducted under a disguise of violent riots along the border, is another confirmation that Hamas terror organization is working to preserve the confrontation in the border area and to harm IDF soldiers while using civilians in the Gaza Strip as human and as a cover for terrorist activity,” the IDF stressed.
The IDF is ready to act against terror that seeks to harm its forces and defense infrastructures,” concluded the statement.
On Monday, hundreds of Muslim terrorists gathered at Gaza’s northern beaches to riot, prepare and send makeshift rafts with burning tires towards Israel.
Dozens of boats took part in a terror flotilla which attempted to breach Israel’s maritime border.
The Israeli Navy fired warning shots towards the boats and they moved back to Gaza.
