GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas' al-Qassam Brigades declared Monday that 10 fighters were killed in an operation in eastern Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza Strip.

It said that early Monday 12 al-Qassam fighters infiltrated an Israeli military site in eastern Beit Hanoun.

The 12 split into two groups; the first fired an RPG shell at an Israeli military jeep completely burning it, while the other clashed with soldiers in another jeep.

While one of the groups was retreating it was targeted by Israeli warplanes, as the other group clashed with Israeli special forces.

10 al-Qassam fighters were killed during the operation; two returned safely.

The brigades highlighted that the operation was in retaliation for the "massacre" in the Shujaiyeh neighborhood of Gaza City on Sunday.

Israel's army spokesman confirmed that 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 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.

In Israel, [a] the urban infrastructure undamaged, [b] few are injured,
and [c] only 20 are dead, while
In Gaza, [a] the urban infrastructure is largely rubble, [b] 3,100 are injured, and [c] 510 are dead, in a war they so foolishly started again, so
** FOR THE SAKE OF THE PEOPLE OF GAZA, if
** HAMAS & other militants will not surrender, & accept peace, then they
** SHOULD LEAVE GAZA, and continue the Resistance from elsewhere !!!

Just more proof that the PA's funding of Hamas has gone to buy weapons, uniforms, equipment, etc., and not to help the people of Gaza improve their situation. When will the people of Gaza wake up and realize that they are just dupes?

So Hamas terrorists are dressing as Israeli soldiers, trying to get into Israel to kill anyone they find. Time for the IDF to dress like Hamas soldiers. What goes around comes around. Hamas is doomed. Gaza will be much better off without them. Time for the citizens of Gaza to throw off the yolk of Hamas and help the IDF eradicate them.

The men who were killed were killed while opposing military occupation. They were attacking legitimate military targets. If you call these men "terrorists" that word simply has no meaning.

One Question: How come Hamas has "FIGHTERS"? And yet Israel has "SOLDIERS"? per the article....

The world can only HOPE that more Hamas soldiers decided to poke their heads out of their rat holes on the border. Its kind of fun to watch them get blown up via the video coverage on the news. Its like a video game. It gets you excited to see how long until the bomb falls on them and the GAME IS OVER sign flashes.

As I am led to understand , this group of Hamas fighters appeared out of nowhere wearing IDF uniforms and tried to trick the real IDF to let down their guard and to be killed or kidnapped. Putting on fake military uniforms of the opposition is an unwritten NO NO in war. Hamas is doing anything to try to get an upper hand. If it was up to me I would carpet bomb Gaza. The people have no guts to stand up to Hamas or they are all under Hamas' evil spell. What leadership allows so much death. HAMAS!
