(Scroll down for video) The Israel Defense Forces killed four heavily armed Hamas terrorists as they were making their way into Israel, the Tazpit News Agency reported.
The IDF eliminated the four terrorists at sea.
The terrorists were spotted on their way to a beach on Israel’s southern shores, and their final destination was the Kibbutz of Zikim. The terrorists were spotted while diving from Gaza’s shores and were stopped by IDF infantry, who ambushed them on the Israeli shore.
All terrorists were killed in the gunfight that ensued. One soldier was lightly wounded. Judging by the amount of weapons the terrorists were carrying they probably intended to inflict severe damage to the civilian population at the kibbutz and the surrounding towns.
All residents in the area of the incident were ordered to stay in their homes and masses of security forces are currently blocking off the area. A security official has announced that the operation has not yet been concluded. They may be searching for further terrorists.
Earlier today, the IDF Spokesperson announced that the IDF attacked a vehicle in which a Hamas terrorist, Mohammed Shaaban, 24, of Jabalya, had been traveling. Shaaban was a trainer and commander of Hamas’ naval commando force in northern Gaza.
Two other people were inside the vehicle when it was struck, the IDF said. He may have trained the terrorists who were eliminated earlier today.
