The army declines to comment on whether the two Palestinians who shot at IDF troops from along the Gaza border were killed.
Earlier, the IDF said it had thwarted a shooting attack carried out by a “terror cell” in the northern Gaza Strip.
Two Palestinians approached the coastal enclave’s security fence and fired toward IDF troops, the army said.
In response, the soldiers fired back at the terrorists and were joined by tanks and IAF fighter jets who also targeted three nearby military posts belonging to the Hamas terror group, according to the army.
The IDF statement asserted that no injuries or damage was caused as a result of the attack. It was not immediately clear whether it was referring exclusively to the Israeli side, or not.
