A week after the IDF exposed a terror tunnel that led from Gaza to a Jewish community, IDF forces on Monday found and defused a powerful explosive charge that had been planted by terrorists near the security fence that separates Israel from the central part of Gaza.

During routine morning activity on the security path that the IDF patrols along the border, Engineering Corps soldiers from the Southern Regiment discovered the hidden charge. Large forces were summoned and the explosive was neutralized.

It will either be blown up in a controlled fashion, or taken away for laboratory inspection.

The IDF Spokesman said Monday that Palestinians continue to attempt to carry out terror attacks against Israeli targets.

“The terror elements continue to make us of the area near the security fence to plan attacks against the troops,” the spokesman said.
