Israel’s Air Force (IAF) on Monday morning targeted a Hamas terror target Gaza in response to a cross-border attack earlier in the day.
Three terrorists infiltrated Israel through the security fence near the northern Gaza Strip and then returned to Gaza. An IDF tank fired at them.
IDF troops later located two explosive devices placed by the terrorists at the scene.
In response, the IAF bombed a Hamas military target.
“The IDF views with great severity any attempt to damage the security fence or security infrastructure and will not allow the region to become a combat zone,” the IDF stated, noting that “Hamas is responsible for all events originating from the Gaza Strip and its consequences.”
This incident occurred amid the daily violence on the Israel-Gaza border, orchestrated by Hamas, the Islamic terror group that rules the Gaza Strip and calls for Israel’s destruction.
Hamas has organized a series of protests at the border under the banner of the “March of the Return,” to continue until May 15, the 70th anniversary of the State of Israel, which the Palestinians observe as Nakba Day, meaning Day of Catastrophe.
Some 30 Palestinians, mostly terrorists, have been killed in over two weeks of clashes.
