2014 Gaza Conflict

Tunnel raid kills five soldiers

29 Jul, 2014

A Hamas squad infiltrates Israel and kills five soldiers in an attack on a military post south of Kibbutz Nahal Oz in the vicinity of the Karmi Crossing with the Gaza Strip. The militants are reported to have surfaced 150 meters inside the border before firing an anti-tank missile at the Israel Defense Forces position, fatally wounding four, and trying to drag away one of the bodies before exchanging fire with the soldiers. The tunnel, thought to originate in the neighborhood of Shejaiya, had previously been partly demolished and was believed to be inactive.
