A Palestinian terrorist was killed by IDF troops near the Rafah crossing Tuesday overnight. Palestinians claimed that a special IDF force, including some tanks, was operating in the area, uprooting trees and conducting house to house searches. Palestinians also claimed also that an IDF aircraft fired a missile at a group of gunmen and killed one of them, a Hamas affiliate. During morning operations in the Gaza Strip, terrorists opened small arms fire on IDF soldiers on at least two occasions. No soldiers were wounded in any of the incidents. Meanwhile, a Hamas activist was killed and two others injured when a tunnel they were digging under the Erez Crossing collapsed on them. Palestinian sources reported that Hamas's military wing issued a statement lauding the man for dying while fulfilling a jihad mission.
