Gaza attack foiled


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli troops prevented three Palestinians from carrying out a terrorist attack near the border with Gaza.

At least seven Palestinians reportedly were wounded Thursday evening when Israel’s Air Force fired at three Palestinians planting explosives near the fence, close to Kibbutz Nahal Oz, Ynet reported.

The Palestinians reportedly were taking advantage of heavy fog to carry out their mission.

Following the foiling of the attack, several mortar shells were fired from Gaza at the area, according to Ynet.
