Israeli soldiers wounded in operation to destroy tunnel in Gaza
Five wounded - one seriously - by explosive devise; in response, IDF opens fire on Palestinian militants, reportedly killing one.
Haaretz reported that five Israeli soldiers were wounded in an attack late Thursday while on an operational mission to destroy a tunnel dug by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
The force was taking part in a joint operation by the Golani infantry brigade and the Combat Engineering Corp to destroy a part of a tunnel network discovered in the southern Gaza Strip last month. In the course of the operation, an explosive device was detonated against the soldiers, wounding five, a statement from the Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson's Unit said.
