A terrorist infiltration was prevented at the Gaza border Sunday afternoon, the IDF reported.
A short time ago, an IDF force fired at three terrorists who attempted to damage the security fence and cross into Israeli territory in the southern Gaza Strip.
Two of the terrorists were were killed.
The infiltration follows an explosion in Gaza in which six members of the Hamas terrorist organization were killed Saturday.
The terrorist group stated that the six were killed in a "complex security and intelligence operation" and blamed Israel for the blast. A Hamas spokesperson vowed that the organization would seek "revenge" for the explosion,
