The IDF, in a joint operation with the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), was able to foil a planned terror attack in Israel on Wednesday evening, as IAF aircraft struck and killed two terrorists in southern Gaza.

The two terrorists, Ashraf Saleh and Anis Abu Elenein, were members of a group calling itself The Al-Aqsa Defenders, which the IDF said is supported by Hamas.
The IDF Spokespersons Unit confirmed the attack in a statement, adding that direct hits were identified.
The IDF said that Anis Abu Elenein had been planning to carry out a terror attack within Israel which was almost completed.
The statement added that Abu Elenein was involved in other terror attack attempts in recent years, including an attempt to smuggle explosives from Gaza through Egypt into Israel. He also directed terrorist activity in Judea and Samaria, said the IDF.
Ashraf Saleh was in the past a member of the Popular Resistance Committees and had been arrested and interrogated. During his interrogation he admitted to being involved in the smuggling of two terrorists into Egypt for the purpose of carrying out suicide bombing attacks in Israel. He was also involved in weapons trafficking, according to the IDF.
The IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm the citizens of the State of Israel and IDF soldiers and will continue to act decisively and strongly against anyone who carries out terrorism against Israel, said the IDF statement, adding that the Hamas terror group is responsible for all acts of terrorism coming from Gaza.
