Israeli troops foiled a terror attack along the Gaza border.

The military on Tuesday discovered and defused a powerful bomb planted next to the security fence, the IDF announced Tuesday evening.

The bomb was meant to attack soldiers patrolling near the security fence separating Israel from the Gaza Strip, according to the IDF, which said in a statement that the bomb was planted at the end of last week, using the cover of heavy fog.

“This incident proves, yet again, that terror organizations, headed by Hamas, use the area adjacent to the security fence in order to carry out terror attacks against Israeli citizens and IDF soldiers,” the IDF spokesman said. “IDF soldiers’ alertness prevented a terror attack aimed at them.”
