Al-Qassam announces the killing of 5 occupation soldiers and the breach of the separation fence with Israel

Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, announced today, Thursday, that it "killed 5 Israeli soldiers" in the detonation of a tunnel west of the city of Rafah, south of the Gaza Strip. Al-Qassam said, in a statement via "Telegram", that its elements were able this morning, Thursday, to "detonate an entrance of a tunnel that was previously booby-trapped on a Zionist infantry force consisting of 5 soldiers and eliminate it, near Tel Za'rab, west of the city of Rafah." Al-Qassam also targeted two "Merkava" tanks and two "D9" bulldozers with "Al-Yassin 105" shells east of the city of Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip, and bombed the invading forces east of the Al-Bureij camp with heavy mortar shells. Earlier on Thursday, Qassam Brigades announced that its members had breached the security fence separating Gaza and Israel, and attacked the headquarters of its army division operating in the city of Rafah. In contrast, the Israeli occupation army claimed, in a statement issued today, Thursday, that it had killed 3 Palestinians, and that they were unable to infiltrate through the separation fence. The Israeli occupation army announced, earlier on Thursday, that one of its soldiers had been killed in a battle in the southern Gaza Strip, and said in a brief statement that First Sergeant Zaid Mazarib (34 years old), who was investigating a trace in the Border Guard, was killed during a battle in the southern Gaza Strip.
