The Israel Air Force on Wednesday struck a Palestinian terrorist squad that was planting a bomb near the security fence in northern Gaza, the IDF spokesperson said. Two were killed and one was injured.
Hamas, the terrorist group that governs Gaza, claimed that all of the victims were civilians and threatened that ” its security forces are ready to deal with any new escalation.”
The IDF spokesperson said aircraft and tanks participated in the strike after the terrorists were spotted along the border.
Israel says it holds Hamas accountable for all attacks emanating from Gaza.
