During Israel's 2014 assault on Gaza, members of the military wing of Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist movement that governs the Gaza Strip, managed to swim to Israeli territory and launch an attack on Israeli army installation before being killed.

The drone was said to have been recovered in one piece, according to the IDF, and an investigation into the incident has been opened. Armed with automatic weapons, fragmentation grenades and several types of explosive devices, they were engaged and killed by the IDF in a combined attack from the sea, ground and air. "In response, an IDF tank targeted a military observation post in the southern Gaza Strip". The bomb was detonated by army engineers, causing no casualties, the military said on Twitter.

The IAF attacked Hamas positions in Gaza late Saturday in response to the infiltration of four Palestinians into Israeli territory.

"The IDF views with great severity the daily attempts of the Hamas terrorist organization to strike at security infrastructure in Israeli territory while threatening the security of both residents and soldiers", read the IDF statement. No injuries were reported in the incident.

Dozens of burning kites were flown from Gaza across the border over the weekend, sparking several fires in Israeli fields, Hadashot TV news reported Saturday night.
