The Israel Defense Forces says Palestinian terrorists “opened fire” at troops operating on the western side of the Gaza border fence, near the southern community of Kissufim.

The IDF says one of its tanks shelled the terror cell in response.

Hamas earlier had claimed to have clashed with Israeli forces in the area, amid reports by Hebrew-language media of an anti-tank guided missile attack from Gaza that caused several casualties.
