Israeli troops foiled an attempt by Hamas terrorists to infiltrate a kibbutz near the Gaza frontier through an underground tunnel before dawn on Thursday, the army announced.

Soldiers manning the border area identified 13 terrorists who crossed into Israeli territory near Kibbutz Sufa through a tunnel that was dug in the southern Gaza Strip.



The army said that the troops "neutralized the threat." There was no word as to the number of casualties in the gunfire, though Israeli troops suffered no injuries.

The army said it held Hamas responsible for the attempted attack.
