Several hours after IDF soldiers killed two Palestinian terrorists who were trying to plant a bomb along the Gaza border fence, Border Police forces killed a terrorist who tried to carry out a shooting attack at their base in the Negev on Saturday afternoon. At approximately 2 p.m. Saturday, a Palestinian woman armed with a rifle arrived at the Border Police base near the Shoket Junction between Beersehba and Arad, and opened fire at the soldiers. The soldiers returned fire and managed to neutralize the terrorist, who was killed in the clash. The soldiers were not wounded in the incident. A police sapper arrived at the scene of the attack in order to dismantle any explosives device the woman may have been wearing. Security forces were searching the area in order to detain any suspects who may have assisted the terrorist and were investigating how she arrived at the gates of the base.
