The Muslim war against Israel never stops: an IDF force shot dead an armed terrorist who tried to cross into Israel from Gaza near Kibbutz Erez Friday afternoon.

A security source said that the IDF force identified an infiltration attempt. As soon as the soldiers verified that the infiltrator is an armed terrorist, the soldiers opened fire on him and killed him.

The level of alert in the Jewish communities near Gaza was elevated after the incident, out of concern that additional terrorists were on the loose.

Thursday morning, the IDF prevented terrorists from firing an anti-tank missile at an IDF force that was in motion near the security fence. Later in the day the IAF attacked a car carrying a terrorist missile launching squad in the Zeitun neighborhood of Gaza.

Friday morning, Border Police opened fire on two Gaza residents who tried to infiltrate into Israel through the southern part of the Israeli-Egyptian border, where there is no security fence. One of the two was killed and the other was wounded and taken to Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva.
