IDF: Explosives-laden drone from Gaza discovered in Israel

On Saturday morning, Israeli soldiers spotted four Palestinians who crossed the security fence into Israel from the southern Gaza Strip, the Times of Israel reported. A spokesperson for the Iran-backed terrorist group confirmed the men were members of its military arm.

The Israeli army revealed that the device was detonated.

Meanwhile, the Israel Defense Forces released a statement saying that their tank "targeted a military observation post in the southern Gaza Strip a short while ago".

Speaking at the weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel would not "tolerate attacks against us from the Gaza Strip".

According to the army, the four threw a petrol bomb, and left a tent inside Israel with the message: "March of Return: Returning to the lands of Palestine", the Times said.

Just hours before this announcement, the IDF announced that it had deactivated an explosive wired to a border fence.

No injuries were reported either from local sources or the IDF.
