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

"A number of terrorists came out of the ocean and attacked the base with Kalashnikov rifles and hand grenades," spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner said.

Soldiers at the base, near the Zikim kibbutz, responded. Ground troops killed two of the attackers, air raids a third and naval forces the fourth, Lerner said.

One soldier was lightly wounded, he added.

Israeli media reported that a fifth fighter was later killed.

The al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamist group Hamas, reported the attack. It said nothing of losses among its own forces.

The group said the operation went as planned, and that the leader of the fighters on the ground confirmed there were casualties among the Israeli army.

Israeli airstrikes on at least 150 targets inside Gaza killed 15 people on Tuesday, medics said, including children.

Ma'an staff contributed to this report.

So when is Abbas going to announce the end of the Disunity Government with Hamas? Hamas never intended to be bound by the Unity government agreement. Hamas never intended to give up terrorism. Hamas will bring Gaza down with it.

We are happy to send more of these war criminals to their paradise. Their apparent goal was to kill civilians, which is the Hamas stated goal with their rockets - that's why they aim them all at Israeli cities, not at IDF bases.
