Hamas releases video Tuesday that purports to show militants emerging from a tunnel and attacking Israeli soldiers.
It could not be independently verified by Reuters.
At first, Hamas militants appear to run through a desert landscape before sneaking up on an Israeli military post.
It is said to be in Nahal Oz, in southern Israel.
A red circle highlights what appears to be an Israeli soldier as seen through a gate.
Militants open fire and storm the watch tower compound.
They appear to attack and shoot men on the ground.
A Hamas leader said in a voiceover message during the TV broadcast that Palestinians would continue confronting Israel until its blockade on Gaza was lifted.
