Palestinians Killed by IDF while Planting Explosives
Two Palestinians were killed at approximately noon today (Wednesday, January 18th) by the Israeli military who fired on a terrorist cell near the Gaza Strip.

Palestinian authorities claim that one other person was injured during the attack.

The Israel Defense Forces claim that the two Palestinians were seen approaching the border fence in the Strip at around 11:30 am, along with unidentified but “suspicious” cargo

IDF tanks and one Israeli Air Force plane fired at the men when they got to within 30 meters of the fence.

The IDF defended the action by saying that the men were in the process of hiding explosives near the fence to either kill Israeli soldiers or, as was the case with Gilad Shalit, kidnap them.

"The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to target the citizens and soldiers of the State of Israel and will continue to act against any element involved in terror. Hamas is fully responsible."
