The IDF located the body of a second terrorist killed in an attack along the Egyptian border Monday morning, and found him to be in possession of an explosive device.

A terror cell crossed into earlier Monday, killing one Israeli worker and seriously wounding another.

The incident took place at around 6 a.m., along a section of the Egyptian border, located about 30 km. from the Gaza Strip and not far from the Israeli town of Nitzana. The cell attacked a group of workers involved in constructing the border fence with light gunfire and at least one RPG.
