Hamas says fighters returned unharmed after entering Israel

July 17, 2014 4:34 P.M. (Updated: July 17, 2014 4:34 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Hamas' military wing said Thursday that a group of its fighters entered southern Israel and returned safely.

A group of fighters managed to "infiltrate behind the enemy lines in the Sufa area at 4 in the morning. The group came under enemy fire during withdrawal after they completed their mission."

The al-Qassam Brigades said no casualties were reported.

Thirteen Gaza fighters emerged from a tunnel under the southern Gaza border, and were headed towards Sufa kibbutz, a small community just over a kilometer away, when they were spotted, Israeli army spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner told journalists.

Israeli forces killed at least one of the militants in an air raid, he said, leaving the rest rushing back towards the tunnel.
