The Israel Defense Forces says troops of the Paratroopers Brigade, including senior officers, are working to clear the southern city of Sderot of suspected Palestinian terrorists who infiltrated into Israel over the past two days.

“The Paratroopers Brigade is engaged in persistent fighting, during which the commanders and fighters of the brigade are carrying out searches in the towns and thwarting terrorists,” the IDF says in a statement.

The IDF says the commander of the brigade, Col. Ami Biton, his deputy, the head of the brigade’s training base, and many other forces are searching Sderot and “purging the city of gunmen.”
