Al-Qassam Brigades ambushes Israeli naval forces, foils infiltration attempt
GAZA, (PIC)-- Al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said its resistance fighters at dawn Sunday frustrated an infiltration attempt by Israeli naval troops on the beach of Al-Sudaniya area, north of Gaza, and inflicted heavy losses on them.
In a communique, Al-Qassam Brigades stated that a special unit of its fighters ambushed Israeli naval infiltrators attempting a landing on Sudaniya beach and severely wounded several of them.
When the infiltration attempt failed, Israeli warplanes provided cover for other naval troops on military boats to pull out their wounded comrades from the beach.
One Israeli military helicopter acted in a confused way during the engagement and indiscriminately targeted nearby buildings, including a mosque, according to Al-Qassam Brigades' statement.
A spokesman for the Israeli occupation army admitted that four soldiers suffered injuries during the operation.
Al-Qassam Brigades, however, said the Israel army did not reveal, as usual, the real human losses that happened among its soldiers during the failed operation.
