Five Israeli soldiers were killed early Tuesday morning after heavily armed Hamas gunman got into the country through an underground tunnel, the Israeli military said.

The Times of Israel reported that four to seven gunmen emerged from the tunnel, which spanned about 150 yards inside Israel:

The assailants managed to reach a pillbox guard tower next to Kibbutz Nahal Oz, and fired an anti-tank missile at the small barracks attached to the pillbox. Five soldiers were killed in that attack.
