The IDF launched a surprise drill near the Gaza Strip on Sunday. The day-long exercise is designed to increase the readiness of military forces in the area, and is a part of a series of training activities that occur throughout the year, the army added.
 
The exercise was ordered by Southern Command chief Maj.-Gen. Sami Turgerman.

On Wednesday, the IDF uncovered an explosive device planted on the Gaza-Israel border.
