A Golani Brigade unit operating in the Kissufim area identified a cell of at least four Palestinian gunmen approaching the fence.
Palestinian sources reported that at least two of the cell members were hit in the strike.
According to the IDF two terrorists were killed in the attack and multiple explosives were found on their bodies.
One soldier was lightly hurt in the incident.
This is the first incident in weeks in which terrorists are killed on the fence. Despite the relative calm, the Southern Command is closely monitoring the developments in the area, and the Palestinians' incessant attempts to place explosives near the fence.
