Three Palestinian terrorists were killed in an IDF attack on the Gaza Strip on Monday night according to Hamas-run television.

In a joint Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) and IDF operation, an IDF drone located a cell of Palestinian terrorists preparing to fire rockets into Israel territory from a location in the central Gaza Strip.  There was a secondary explosion after the terrorists were hit by fire, according to a statement released by the IDF.
