An IDF soldier was lightly wounded on Monday in clashes with Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
The soldier, from the Armored Corps, was part of a force that intercepted two Palestinians who were trying to lay a bomb along the security fence in the southern Gaza Strip.
The force detected the Palestinians and opened fire, killing one of them. In response, sniper fire was opened and the soldier was wounded and evacuated to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba.
The IDF has recorded 35 attempts by Palestinians to plant bombs along the border fence since the beginning of the year.
