Explosives detonate near Gaza border, damaging Israeli army vehicle


Explosives detonated near the border fence with Gaza damaged an Israeli military vehicle.

Terrorists planted the explosives that were detonated Tuesday while the Israeli army's engineering unit was working near the fence, the Israel Defense Forces said. The unit was searching for explosive charges that intelligence reports said were buried in the area.

The IDF said the detonation on the border was the first since the end of the weeklong Operation Pillar of Defense in November.

Meanwhile, the IDF on Monday moved two Iron Dome missile defense batteries to southern Israel in the wake of rocket attacks from Gaza, including one on the evening of Holocaust Remembrance Day that disrupted ceremonies in the area.
