Forces from the IDF's Givati Brigade opened fire and killed five terrorists from Gaza on Tuesday who emerged from a tunnel.  
The IDF forces suffered no casualties. 

The forces seized a large amount of weapons, including Kalachnikov rifles, bullets and explosives.

Earlier in the morning, Gazan militants fired an anti-tank missile at Armored Corps forces who subsequently fired back at the source of the fire. There were no injuries to the IDF forces in the attack. 

The IDF says that since midnight on Tuesday, the IDF attacked more than 110 terror targets.

From the beginning of Operation Protective Edge, 22 days ago, the IDF said it attacked more than 3,100 terror targets.  

The IDF announced Tuesday that five soldiers were killed in an attempted infiltration into Israel on Monday via a cross-border tunnel from Gaza.
