The Israeli army reported that an "explosive device" was detonated Tuesday morning around 9 am, targeting an Israeli patrol along the border fence. One "non-commissioned officer" was killed and a second officer "seriously wounded," an army spokeswoman said. A third soldier was lightly wounded.
Israel immediately responded with tank fire and helicopter strikes, area residents say. One local farmer was reported killed, according to local medical sources.
That farmer, he wouldn't have been a "militant", would he?
