      An IDF force discovered several explosive charges near the security fence separating Gaza from Israel Thursday, near Kibbutz Sufa. The large scale explosives are arranged in an array pattern designed to maximize damage to its targets.

      An IDF engineering force was believed to be working into the night under heavy security to neutralize the charges.

      IDF helicopters are hovering overhead and firing into open areas in order to keep away terrorists who were trying to come near.

      A large scale explosive charge was placed along the security fence with Gaza earlier this week. The charges are intended for attacks against IDF soldiers and possibly for attempted abductions.
