Three Palestinians were killed Thursday night after they were struck by IAF-fired missiles as they tried planting an explosive device along the Gaza Strip security fence near the Kissufim crossing. The three were spotted by an IDF infantry unit that had laid an ambush on the Israeli side of the Gaza fence. The unit transmitted the coordinates of the terror cell to the IAF and an aircraft, already in the air, fired the missiles. The three were killed instantly. Palestinians frequently try to plant bombs next to the security fence to target military forces that patrol nearby.
