Three Israeli soldiers were wounded on Tuesday morning when a roadside bomb exploded near an armored vehicle along the border with the Gaza Strip, Army Radio reported.

The injured soldiers received medical care at the scene and one was later transported to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba for further treatment.

The incident occurred in the Kibbutz Nirim area as soldiers from the Givati Brigade were conducting a routine patrol.

In a statement, the Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson’s Unit said the IDF would continue to act against terrorism emanating from the Gaza Strip. It cast blame for such terrorism on Hamas.

Two weeks ago, an IDF company commander was seriously wounded by an explosive device along the fence near the Kissufim border crossing.
