No injuries were sustained to the soldiers.

The military expressed its regret over the “shocking incident,” and condemned terrorists in Gaza for strapping bombastic devices to innocent animals as a means of attacking Israeli forces.

“This cruel incident is the most recent attempt by Gaza terror organizations to make such an abominable use of animals as explosives couriers,” the IDF said on its website.
