Terrorists in Hamas-controlled Gaza early Tuesday morning (6th) exploded a bomb and shot at Israeli soldiers, who returned fire.
Three soldiers were wounded. Two were treated at the scene and one was air-lifted to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba.
The bomb blew up when the IDF was patrolling a road near Kibbutz Nirim, close to the security fence in south central Gaza.
Last week, an Israeli army officer was seriously wounded when a terrorist bomb blew up his vehicle as he was on patrol.
