Early this morning, Israeli military personnel launched an air and armor strike on terrorists who were attempting to plant an explosive device along the border in Northern Gaza, near Beit Hanoun.

The IDF released a statement, saying “an explosion was identified, originating from the explosive device the terrorists attempted to plant near the security fence with the intention of harming IDF soldiers, ” also saying, “The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel.

The Jewish state reaffirmed it’s stance that responsibility for “any terrorist activity emanating from Gaza” is with Hamas.
