The terrorists were armed with an RPG, hand-grenades and assault rifles, IDF spokesperson said.
A Palestinian terrorist group attempted to cross the Gaza Strip border armed with an RPG, hand-grenades and assault rifles, IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said on Saturday morning.
They were spotted by IDF soldiers stationed at the border and engaged, during the clash hand-grenades were tossed and the soldiers killed the terrorists. No IDF soldiers were hurt.
We just identified a number of terrorists from Gaza approaching Israel, armed with AK-47 assault rifles, RPG grenade launchers & grenades—one of which was thrown. Once one of the terrorists crossed into Israel, our troops opened fire.
These are the weapons possessed by the terrorists who attempted to infiltrate into Israel from Gaza last night.
Their (unfulfilled) objective: murdering Israelis.
The terrorists were neutralized.
