An IDF force shot a terrorist who attempted to infiltrate Israel by crossing the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip this morning, Thursday.

A knife and a wire cutter were found on the body of the suspect, who was evacuated by IDF forces for medical treatment and further questioning.

In recent weeks, terrorists from Gaza attempt almost daily to infiltrate Israel via the security fence. Earlier this week, three terrorists were shot and killed in two different incidents as they tried to cross into Israel.

Several weeks ago, three terrorists managed to cross the fence and walk miles into Israeli territory, reaching the Tze’elim army base in the Eshkol region before being apprehended by security forces.

Armed with knives and grenades, they admitted under interrogation that they had intended to attack soldiers.
