IDF Offensive In Gaza
The IDF carried out a broad offensive in Gaza over the night, involving infantry, tanks, combat engineering forces, and helicopter cover. The forces found and destroyed nine bomb-manufacturing plants, as well as 38 mortar shells and Kassam rockets. The Israelis also destroyed the home of the terrorist who tried to blow up an Israeli Coast Guard boat. The IDF forces were attacked with bombs, grenades, and light-weapons fire, and one soldier was lightly wounded. In addition, the PA forces fired three anti-tank rockets at IDF outposts in northern Gaza. The Arabs reported that two of their men had been killed and 14 wounded.
