Israeli soldiers foiled an attempted terror attack near the border fence with Gaza.
Two men on the Gaza side of the fence approached the fence Monday morning carrying a “suspicious object,” the Israel Defense Forces spokesman said in a tweet. The soldiers fired warning shots into the air, causing the two men to flee the scene, leaving the object, which then exploded, according to the IDF.
Israeli patrols have been targeted regularly with explosives planted near the Gaza border.
