Israel Jihad

The Times of Israel reports that “An Israeli tank fired on an Islamic Jihad position in the southern Gaza Strip on Sunday morning, killing at least two people, after Palestinians planted an explosive device along the security fence in the latest exchange along the restive border, the army said.

According to the Hamas-run Gaza health ministry, two people were killed and one was seriously injured in the Israeli strike, near the city of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.”

The Israel Defense Forces said the improvised explosive device was placed along the security fence on Saturday.

The army said the IED had been disguised to look like a set of bolt cutters, with the explosives hidden inside the handles.
