Israeli navy attack Palestinian boats
Israel has released video of Hamas militants being wiped out while attempting to aggressively cross the border by sea.
In the thermal camera clip, the Israeli Navy is seen firing explosive rounds at small boats moving at full-throttle.
The video shows multiple blasts on the craft as the vehicles are destroyed.
The Israeli Defence Force’s press office said the two crafts were carrying “dozens of terrorists trying to infiltrate Israel”.
In a statement, the Israeli Navy said: “The fighters of the sea arm eliminated dozens of terrorists in the southern maritime space and on the coastline.
“In the early hours of the morning, the sea arm’s fighters conducted a naval pursuit and eliminated dozens of terrorists who tried to reach Israeli territory.
“The fighters opened fire at them and destroyed two rubber boats, two other vessels and an agricultural tool.”
Earlier today, Hamas, the Palestinian militant movement which governs large parts of Gaza, claimed responsibility for more than 2,000 rockets fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
Israeli authorities say at least 40 people are dead and nearly 800 more wounded in Israel after the early morning surprise attack.
The IDF has said Hamas fighters entered southern Israel by land, sea and air, using paragliders.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared his country “at war”, and vowed that Hamas will “pay a price it has never known” for the attack.
