Crossing the border GAZA: IDF says large-scale terror attack thwarted as troops prevent Gaza infiltration



Note: images and headline from Israeli paper. Reuters would never feature such photos.


[www.reuters.com]
JERUSALEM/GAZA (Reuters) - Israeli forces killed four heavily-armed Palestinians as they attempted to cross the Gaza border on Saturday, the Israeli military said.

“The soldiers opened fire after one of the terrorists crossed the border, and killed them,” the military said on Twitter.

The men were armed with assault rifles, anti-tank missiles and hand grenades, the military said. It released photographs of the weapons laid out on the ground.

Military spokesman Jonathan Conricus told reporters the men’s mission was unclear but that a large-scale attack against soldiers or civilians had been prevented.

None of Gaza’s Palestinian militant groups claimed the dead men as members. Conricus said the military was trying to determine their affiliation. He said they were dressed in different uniforms and that they engaged in a gun fight with the soldiers before they were killed. No Israelis were hurt.

Gaza is ruled by the Islamist group Hamas, which has fought three wars with Israel over the past decade. Conricus said Hamas bore overall responsibility for any violence emanating from the Gaza Strip.

In Gaza, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum declined to comment on the details of Saturday’s border incident but blamed Israel for the violence.

“We just identified a number of terrorists from Gaza approaching Israel, armed with AK-47 assault rifles, RPG grenade launchers & grenades—one of which was thrown,” the force posted on its official Twitter account. “Once one of the terrorists crossed into Israel, our troops opened fire,” the statement added. “The terrorists were neutralized.”

The four dead were Abdulah al-Hamayda, Abdulah al-Ghamri, Abdulah al-Masri and Ahmad al-Odeini, security sources inside the Gaza Strip told Efe.
They were all in their early 20s and members of Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, the sources added.

A similar incident that took place 10 days ago left three Israeli soldiers wounded after Hamas militia managed to enter Israel and opened fire at before being shot dead.

Things are somewhat different on the West Bank and Gaza. Charming Hamas remains the same, however.

The Israeli military arrested two Palestinians suspected of the murder of Cpl. Dvir Sorek over the weekend, the IDF announced Saturday evening.

The two terrorists were identified as 24-year-old Nazir Saleh Khalil Atafra – a Hamas activist – and 30-year-old Qasem Araf Khalil Atafra. Both are from the Palestinian village Beit Khalil, north of Hebron in the West Bank, and have had no previous arrests. Earlier on Saturday, four suspects – including a woman – were arrested in a raid in Beit Khalil, the Wafa Palestinian News Agency reported. According to the report, troops arrested four members of the Asafrah family, including 26-year-old Enas Asafrah. During the arrest, Qasem’s car – in which they carried out the attack – was also confiscated.

Sorek was enrolled in the Hesder military program at the Orthodox Machanayim Yeshiva in Migdal Oz, by which he would have simultaneously served in the IDF as both as a soldier and yeshiva student.

Earlier in the day, he had been in Jerusalem, and told his friends that he planned to be back in school by about 8:30 p.m. He was last seen getting off the bus at around 8.00 p.m before walking towards Migdal Oz. His body was found at 3 a.m. near the road leading up to his school, which is located on the edge of Migdal Oz, by the gate.

We're sorry, Reuters does not seem have any pictures of the mutilated Mr. Sorek's body available. Instead we present this.

Does this mean the family home will be demolished?

Something they should have asked themselves before they went out to commit a hate crime murder.
