Israel has shown it is ready and willing to use the might of its air force, even when targeting a single “armed terrorist” – a person presumed to be a Palestinian spotted at the border fence with Gaza.
“Overnight, an IAF aircraft targeted an armed terrorist adjacent to the security fence in northern Gaza,” the Israeli Army said in a statement. It added that Israel Defense Forces (IDF) operations against “terrorists” will not allow “any harm to the security of Israeli civilians.”
It is unclear what kind of aircraft or how many were dispatched for the operation.
The Palestinian who came under Israeli fire succumbed to his injuries in Shifa Hospital in Gaza City, the Palestinian Health Ministry says.
