Gaza terrorists ambushed an IDF unit working near the Gaza security fence, wounding two; both evacuated to hospital
The two were rushed to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. IDF force returned fire at the location they believed the gunman had fired from.
Placing explosives, sniping, firing mortars, and trying to move antitank weapons into place to fire are “regular” tactics, the official said.
Palestinian Authority affiliated media outlets quoted Hamas officials who claimed seven Gazan “farmers” were wounded by the IDF fire.
The fields of northern Gaza are routinely used by terrorist gangs to fire rockets at Israel’s southern communities.
However, terrorists frequently use the local civilian population as cover, and fire rockets from population centers as a matter of course.
