Palestinian gunmen on Friday morning fired 10 mortar shells at IDF troops who were operating near the Kissufim crossing to the Gaza Strip. There were no casualties or damage reported. The shells were reportedly fired after IDF troops opened fire at a Palestinian gunman who approached the Gaza fence. Earlier Thursday, four Palestinians attempted to plant a bomb along the fence but managed to flee the scene after soldiers discovered them.
