IDF foils terror attack on Gaza border

IDF troops detect, defuse powerful bomb placed on border fence. Army says device was meant to be used as roadside bomb against military forces patrolling sector

The IDF was able to foil an attack against troops patrolling the Gaza border, Ynet learned Monday.


Military forces detected a powerful explosive device that was concealed on the Gaza border fence. IDF sappers defused it safely.


According to the IDF, the device – packing 12 kilograms of explosives – was meant to be used as a roadside bomb against military forces patrolling the sector.


Military sources said that the terrorists took a brazen chance by coming as close as they did to the border fence to place the bomb, noting that they usually place roadside bombs within 100-200 yards of the fence.


No terror group has claimed the attempt at this time.
