Israeli troops kill Gaza fighters in new beach gunfight

July 9, 2014 10:38 P.M. (Updated: July 11, 2014 4:10 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israeli troops killed two Gaza militants in a seafront gunfight Wednesday, close to the site of an attack on a military base a day earlier, media said.

"Two armed terrorists came out of the sea more or less in the same area where the incident took place 24 hours ago," public radio said.

"Army lookouts spotted them and there was a gunfight which ended with both terrorists killed."

Israeli forces on Tuesday killed a number of armed militants who came from Gaza by sea, an Israeli security source told AFP.

Soldiers at the base, near the Zikim kibbutz, responded. Ground troops killed two of the attackers, air raids a third and naval forces the fourth.

One soldier was lightly wounded and a fifth fighter was later killed.
