Two Hamas cells penetrated Gaza fence on Monday, fired at IDF forces

The IDF releases video footage of a gun battle Monday between its forces and two Hamas squads that penetrated the border fence.

The squads, consisting of eight individuals, opened fire on an elite IDF unit on the Israeli side. A gunbattle ensued. All eight Hamas fighters were killed, while no IDF soldiers are hurt.

According to the Israeli military, an Israeli team entered Gaza earlier today at the same location along the fence, located the hiding place of the Hamas force and found bombs and equipment for cutting through the border fence stashed at the site. The force destroyed the site.

According to the army, the Hamas operation was one of many attempts to penetrate the border fence yesterday under cover of mass protests.
