Bomb injures Israeli soldier near Gaza fence


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli soldier on patrol was injured when a remote-controlled explosive detonated on the Israeli side of central Gaza’s security fence.

Following Thursday’s explosion, Israeli soldiers searched the area and discovered a second explosive device, which was detonated at the scene by army sappers, the Israel Defense Forces reported.

"The IDF sees Hamas as responsible for maintaining the peace and quiet in the Gaza Strip," the IDF said in a statement.
