The Israeli Air Force (IAF) dropped leaflets throughout Gaza, warning the Arabs not to approach the security fence between Gaza and Israel at a distance of less than 300 meters (984 feet), while saying “the Israeli army will operate against all those who approach the fence, due to the threat that they pose to the civilians of the State of Israel.”
Last Friday, two armed Arab terrorists approached the Gaza security fence north of the Kerem Shalom Crossing in an attempt to plant explosive devices.
An IAF force crossed the fence and fired at the terrorists, who were killed. Their bodies were armed with explosive device, two AK-47 rifles, hand grenades and military vests.
Later that same day, an bomb was detonated along the fence in northern Gaza, in the Nahal Oz area. Last Monday, Arabs detonated two bombs near Israeli soldiers patrolling on the Israeli side of the security fence in the northern Gaza Strip. No casualties were incurred.
