Israel Releases Footage of Gaza Sea Barrier

Watch: Two Hamas Terrorists Dead as Israel Returns Fire from Gaza Hamas Vows 'Dire Consequences' for Israel, Amid Latest Gaza Border Flare-Up

The men were both claimed as members of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, a violent wing of Hamas.

In an earlier statement, the Israeli military said gunmen had fired on its soldiers from a Hamas post, which was shelled by a tank in response.

The group called to immediately release the captains who were arrested by the Israeli naval forces in global waters as they tried to break the blockade imposed on Gaza.

A video distributed by the Israeli army appeared to show a tank striking a military post in the Gaza Strip.

No injuries to Israeli troops were reported, according to the same statement.

"The resistance can not allow the occupation to impose a policy of bombing sites and targeting fighters without paying the price", it said in a statement. Hamas denies this. Palestinians militants have also fired rockets into Israel and the Israeli military has carried out dozens of air strikes in the enclave.

Speaking later, Hamas leader Ismail Haniya condemned what he called a "crime".

Tensions between Israel and Gaza have escalated since weekly border protests started on March 30, which left more than 150 Palestinians dead and 17,500 others injured, according to statistics released by the Gaza Health Ministry.

Al-Aydi was one of four minors who died of gunshot wounds between July 27 and August 5 after Israeli forces shot them during protests on the the Gaza border.

Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas have fought three wars with Israel since 2008.

Background: Egypt, the United Nations and the United States are involved in a diplomatic process to prevent another war in Gaza, but a miscalculation could still lead to an open conflict.
