The IDF has released new video footage of the elimination of four Hamas terrorists who attempted to carry out a deadly attack after infiltrating the border by sea, on the first day of Operation Defensive Edge.

The terrorists were killed not long after landing ashore, in a joint operation between ground, air and naval forces.

They were on their way to Kibbutz Zikim, located roughly a kilometer and a half (around one mile) north of Gaza along the coast, when they were intercepted by Israeli forces.

Previous footage was taken by IDF ground forces from the Givati infantry brigade.

The new footage highlights the role played by the Israeli navy in the operation:
