Israel hits Gaza terrorists planning attacks


Israel’s military said it struck a Hamas terrorist cell planning to launch an anti-tank missile at Israeli troops and another ready to launch a rocket into Israel.

One Palestinian man was killed and four people were injured in the two attacks on Thursday morning, according to the Ma’an Palestinian news service.

In the first incident, Israeli tanks and aircraft fired on the terrorists, who were targeting Israeli soldiers performing “routine activity near the security fence,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.

In the second incident, the Israeli aircraft hit terrorists completing preparations to launch a rocket into southern Israel, according to the IDF.

The IDF said that in the past year, nearly 400 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip have hit southern Israel.
