BREAKING: A Muslim terrorist armed with a gun was shot and eliminated by IDF forces after attempting to breach Israel’s maritime border near Zikim beach.
According to Arab reports, a 20-year-old ‘fisherman’ was killed by the IDF when his boat approached the Israeli border in northern Gaza area.
Earlier on Wednesday, IDF forces shot and arrested a Muslim terrorist who threw a number of grenades at troops near the security border fence in northern Gaza.
The grenades failed to explode.
In response, IDF troops fired towards the terrorist, caught him alive and arrested him.
The terrorist, who was armed with a knife and wire cutters, was transferred to security forces for further questioning.
The incidents came hours after reports of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that was reached between Israel and Hamas terror group on Tuesday evening, after almost 500 rockets fired at southern Israel by Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists in Gaza.
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman announced his resignation on Wednesday, in protest of the latest ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, criticizing it as “surrender to terrorism” and calling for elections to be held as a soon as possible.
