Soldier and Palestinian Killed in Gaza Firefight

An Israel Defense Forces soldier and a Palestinian militant were killed in an exchange of fire on the Israel-Gaza border on Friday morning.

The exchange of fire ensued after a militant breached the border fence into Israel in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

At approximately 5.30 A.M., the IDF spotted an armed person breaching the border and soldiers from the Golani Brigade were dispatched to the site. The soldiers opened fire toward the militant.

In a statement, the IDF said that “the killing of the terrorist prevented a terrorist attack in Israeli territory”.

“The IDF will act against any entitity that operates against the State of Israel,” the statement read. “The army views Hamas as responsible for all that occurs in the Gaza Strip.”
