While it hasn't been totally quiet on the Southern front since the cease-fire went into effect earlier today things were stepped up. An IDF patrol passing by the border fence with Gaza, near the Kisufim junction was attacked. Initially with an IED and then with RPG and small arms fire. Israeli forces responded with machine gun and tank fire. Unfortunately one soldier was killed and three wounded in the attack. Meanwhile the family has requested that his name not be released. Tzipi Livni has called for a response. Barak: This is a serious incident and we will respond. He also said that we should be ready for more terror attacks.
UPDATE: 1 killed, 2 seriously injured in attack.
