Israel says they repelled an attack by Hamas gunmen who were attempting to sneak into the country.
This is the tunnel they say the gunmen used --- and some weapons and gear found inside. Its opening is located near the southern part of the country.
Hadas Greenshbin is the head of security at a nearby Kibbutz.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) HEAD OF EMERGENCY TEAM AT ISRAELI KIBBUTZ OF SUFA, HADAS GREENSHBIN, SAYING:
"What happened was at about quarter to four we got a note from the army saying that, there is, they found some people trying to get inside Israel. They stopped them on the way. We ordered all the people in the kibbutz to stay home, close the windows and they are still at home. We just went out to talk the media because we didn't want to leave things like that."
This Israeli military video purports to show Hamas gunmen emerging from the tunnel --- just moments before Israeli forces fired on them, killing one of the gunmen.
