IDF says struck terrorist cell in country’s north

Jerusalem, Nov 4 (UNI) The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it had struck a terrorist cell in the country’s north.

“Earlier today, a terrorist cell attempted to launch anti-tank missiles toward the area of Kibbutz Yiftah in northern Israel. The terrorist cell was struck by an IDF tank,” the IDF said on Telegram.

It said an IDF aircraft had also eliminated a terrorist.

“In addition, a terrorist approached the border area from Lebanon near the community of Shlomi and was killed by an IDF aircraft,” the IDF said.

On October 7, Palestinian group Hamas launched a surprise large-scale rocket attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip and breached the border, killing and abducting people in neighboring Israeli communities. Israel launched retaliatory strikes and ordered a complete blockade of the Gaza Strip, home to more than 2 million people, cutting off supplies of water, food, and fuel.

On October 27, Israel launched a large-scale ground incursion inside the Gaza Strip to eliminate Hamas fighters and rescue the hostages. The escalation of the conflict has resulted in the deaths of around 1,400 people in Israel and over 9,000 in the Gaza Strip.
