The Hamas terror group releases a clip showing its members clashing with Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip on Sunday.

The video shows drone footage of Israeli forces gathered inside Gaza, close to the Erez border crossing, before cutting to a body camera of a Hamas operative.

A number of armed Hamas members are exiting a tunnel, and slowly approaching the area where the Israeli forces are stationed.

The gunmen open fire at the IDF troops, and a gun battle ensues.

There have been numerous gun battles in the Gaza Strip in recent days, as the IDF expands its ground operations.

The IDF has so far confirmed that two soldiers have been wounded in the operation — one by mortar fire and another in a clash.

According to the IDF, dozens of Hamas terrorists have been killed in Gaza amid the ground incursion.
