Two anti-tank missiles were fired at IDF soldiers near the Kissufim crossing, in the southern Gaza Strip, early Friday morning in the first incident of its kind since the cease-fire between Israel and Gaza factions took effect some five months ago, the army said.Good riddance to the Hamas "policeman".
No one was wounded in the attack.
The IDF reported that the troops were investigating suspicious movements along the Gaza fence when they came under fire.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility from any Palestinian terror group.
Following the missile fire, soldiers searched the scene out of concern that bombs were planted in the area.
Since the inception of the truce agreement in June, Palestinians have fired over 20 rockets and 20 mortars at western Negev communities, but until Friday, no anti-tank missiles had been fired.
On Thursday night, a Hamas policeman was killed and three others were wounded when a bomb exploded as they tried to safely detonated it in a Gaza City police station, the group said.
Hamas said its forces found the bomb, but would not say where, or why it was taken to the police station.
