Military tensions between Israel and Hamas in Gaza continued to climb overnight between Saturday and Sunday with a new first for the IDF's Operation Protective Edge: Four Shayetet 13 commandos were lightly wounded after their team became the first foot soldiers (as far as is known) to enter the Gaza Strip in recent escalations.


The commandos, specially trained in various anti-terrorist tactics, attacked a building in Gaza overnight where, according to the IDF spokesman, dozens of long-range rockets have been fired at Israel reaching the skies over Tel Aviv and even further north.


The specialized incursion force was met with fire from Hamas operatives as they carried out their mission and returned fire. The target was destroyed and the four wounded soldiers were evacuated to Brazili Hospital in Ashkelon.
