Soldiers from the Golani infantry brigade uncovered and destroyed an explosive device planted by Palestinians near the northern Gaza security fence Friday afternoon, an IDF spokesperson said. Soldiers manning an observation post identified the suspicious object in an area near the fence on the Gaza side, where militants have previously targeted IDF foot and vehicle patrols with roadside bombs. Troops entered the Strip, where they located and destroyed the device in a controlled explosion. No casualties were reported in the incursion and detonation, the army spokesperson said. Meanwhile in the West Bank, Palestinians threw crow bars and other metal debris at an Israeli vehicle travelling northeast of Ramallah Friday evening, causing damage to the car but no injuries to its occupants. Security forces were conducting searches in the area for the attackers.
