A 20-year-old Golani Brigade soldier was killed Friday in a shootout with a Gaza terrorist.

The terrorist tried to infiltrate the western Negev from Gaza and was eliminated during the predawn hours of Friday morning. According to a preliminary investigation, the terrorist took advantage of fog around 4:00 a.m. to go through a hole he cut in the security fence near the Kissufim crossing.

A Golani unit responded to the scene and identified the terrorist who opened fire at the soldiers, killing one. Artillery soldiers fired back, killing the terrorist.

Gaza sources reported that Israeli Air Force jets were flying over the Hamas-controlled area following the incident.

Last week, another officer and soldier from the Golani Brigade were wounded by Gaza sniper fire in the same area. Following treatment at the scene, they were evacuated, with moderate and light wounds, to Soroka Hospital in Be´er Sheva. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 06/01/12)
