Hamas said it fired a rocket barrage at two Israeli army bases on Tuesday, shortly after its militants also attempted to infiltrate Israel by sea.

A statement by Hamas's armed wing, the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades, said it fired "10 Katyusha rockets" at the bases, one of which it said was at Zikim, on Israel's southern coast where the infiltration attempt occurred.

The military told AFP it was checking the claim.
