IDF troops from the Golani Infantry Brigade killed four Palestinian terrorists in two separate incidents Monday overnight. On the northern border of the Gaza Strip, a field unit identified three men trying to scale the security fence with a ladder. The soldiers fired at them, killing two. The third managed to escape. The cell was attempting to enter the Gaza periphery moshav Netiv Ha'asara, Israel Radio reported. In the southern part of the Strip, two Palestinians who approached the fence suspiciously were shot and killed. The military reported that the two were likely trying to plant explosive devices on the patrol road used by army jeeps.
