JERUSALEM, July 28 (Reuters) - Palestinian gunmen slipped into Israel from the Gaza Strip on Monday and penetrated a village near the border before being repelled by the army, Israeli television said, adding that five militants had been killed.

Gaza's dominant Hamas Islamists said in a statement their fighters had killed 10 Israeli soldiers in the incident before returning home safely.
