Qassam Brigades says 10 Israeli soldiers killed in tunnel raid

July 28, 2014 8:02 P.M. (Updated: July 29, 2014 12:25 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Hamas-affiliated al-Qassam Brigades on Monday said the group's fighters had killed 10 Israeli soldiers in an operation inside Israel east of al-Shujaiyya.

Al-Qassam said in a statement that its fighters infiltrated "behind enemy lines" and killed 10 soldiers.

All of its fighters had returned safely to base, the group added.

The Israeli army said in a statement that they had prevented an "attempted infiltration from the northern Gaza Strip through an offensive tunnel into Israel."

The statement added that "militants opened fire" at Israeli forces and "searches were being carried out to find them."

Israeli channel 10 said that an "exchange of fire" had occurred near Nahal Oz east of Gaza, and quoted the Israeli army as saying that they had killed four fighters.

Palestinian militants have killed 43 Israeli soldiers since the beginning of the Israeli assault on Gaza three weeks ago.
