Two suspects were caught planting a bomb near the security fence separating southern Gaza from southern Israel, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Office.
Soldiers noticed the two men working on the ground near the fence in a suspicious manner and “chased them away” from the area, the IDF said.
A short time later, there was an explosion at the site. No one was injured and no damage was reported.
No further details were available on the identities or fate of the two suspects.
