Israeli army kills 2 as militants open fire at southern border

July 19, 2014 4:20 P.M. (Updated: July 20, 2014 7:23 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military said on Saturday that two Palestinian militants attacked a patrol in the southern Gaza Strip but both died without causing any injuries to Israeli forces.

The military said in a statement that they "fired shots and an anti-tank missile at a nearby force, causing no injuries," and that soldiers returned fire and killed one of the militants.

The second fighter, the military said, "was wearing an explosive belt which exploded, causing his death."

Earlier on Saturday, Hamas fighters penetrated Israel through a tunnel and opened fire on an army patrol, injuring at least two soldiers.
