The Israel Defense Forces says troops killed three Palestinian terrorists near the southern town of Nir Am, close to the border with the Gaza Strip.

Soldiers of the 101st Paratroopers Battalion identified the terrorists in a vehicle, and a tank of the 401st Armored Brigade fired at it, the IDF says.

“IDF soldiers are continuing to conduct searches in the area,” the military adds.
