GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas' military wing said Monday that a group of its fighters infiltrated southern Israel from a tunnel in the northern Gaza Strip.

The operation was in retaliation for the "massacre" in the al-Shujaiyeh neighborhood of Gaza City on Sunday, Hamas said, adding that the fighters destroyed an Israeli military jeep.

Israel's army spokesman said 10 Hamas fighters were killed.

"Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israel through two tunnels from north Gaza. IDF intercepted and killed more than 10 terrorists," Lieutenant Colonel Peter Lerner wrote on his official Twitter feed.

Residents in Kissufim and nearby areas in southern Israel were told to stay in their homes and a main highway to Ashkelon was closed.

Israeli casualties were reported in the media although an Israeli military spokeswoman said she could not confirm the reports.

Hamas injures a jeep but loses 10 fighters and thinks it has succeeded. They are deluded.

** ENDLESS WAR AND/OR ENDLESS STAGNATION, AND
** THE CHOICE FOR YOUR PEOPLE IS ENTIRELY YOURS.

Hamas keeps piling on the justification for the Israeli operation in Gaza. Hamas continues to target civilians, hide behind Gazan women and children, store weapons in schools and launch rockets from inbetween houses. Their leaders continue to lead from bunkers, not from the ranks. These are brave Islamic fighters? Sounds more like rich businessmen who don't want to damage their imported Italain shoes or their bank accounts in Qatar.
