1 post in this topic

Israeli troops on Friday shot dead three heavily armed gunmen who sneaked across the Egyptian border and ambushed troops, averting "a very big terror attack," a military spokeswoman said.

"They opened fire toward IDF (Israel Defence Force) troops that were guarding the workers (building the fence) in that area. Another force that was nearby... rushed to the area and targeted those three terrorists," said spokeswoman Lieutenant Colonel Avital Leibovich, saying all three were killed.

"A very big terror attack was thwarted by the response of these soldiers."
