Update: Gaza Terror Attack Included Truck, Car, Horses


The IDF revealed more details regarding Monday morning’s attempted terror attack near Gaza, including that it involved a truck, a car, horses and between 10-12 terrorists. The terrorists evidently intended to use the horses to place explosive devices near the security fence.

The truck and car used by the terrorists indicate that one of the purposes of the attack was to capture Israeli soldiers. In addition, a second terror cell provided mortar cover fire for the terrorists involved in the attack. IDF soldiers killed four of the terrorists while the remainder fled.
