2 Israeli soldiers killed in militant infiltration

Israeli soldiers fire towards the Gaza Strip from their position near Israel's border with the coastal Palestinian enclave, on July 19, 2014Israel’s army announced Saturday the deaths of two of its soldiers in a clash with Gaza militants who had breached the Jewish state’s border, hours after they had been reported wounded. An army statement said the two, Sergeant Adar Bersano, 20, from Nahariya, and Major Amotz Greenberg, 45, from Hod Hasharon, were killed fighting a group of militants who infiltrated Israel through a tunnel from the centre of the Gaza Strip. The army had earlier said two soldiers were wounded in a clash with the militants, who had been “aiming to carry out a lethal attack in one of the nearby communities”. The militants had fired machineguns and an anti-tank missile at the soldiers, who returned fire, “killing a terrorist and forcing the rest back into Gaza”.
