The woman was alone with her four children at home in Moshav Sdeh Avraham close to the Gaza border, when a Palestinian cut through the border fence and tried to knife her. She fought back and put him to flight. The IDF promised to investigate the incident. DEBKAfile reports that the Palestinian, believed to be from the Gaza town of Khan Younes, was enabled to cut through the fence by the easing of Israeli restrictions on Palestinian movements up to the Gaza-Israel border in the wake of the Nov. 21 ceasefire. Military sources say that the new rules are a recipe for more terrorist attacks and attempts to kidnap Israeli soldiers.
