Army kills Gaza militants entering Israel by sea

Israeli forces on Tuesday killed a number of armed militants who came from Gaza by sea, an Israeli security source told AFP.

Israeli media said four armed men were shot dead on the beach about 2.5 kilometres (1.5 miles) from the Gaza border, while Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades, said its men carried out an attack there although it did not report losses.
