Hamas has denied responsibility for the attacks. SOUNDBITE: Hamas spokesman Taher el-Nunu: (Arabic) “We stress that we have no involvement in what happened today in Eilat. The Israeli threats made by Ehud Barak and other occupation leaders are but an attempt at expressing discontent with an internal Israeli crisis and an attempt at transferring that crisis into the Gaza Strip.” The Israeli military put the number of wounded at around 25. Special forces were called in and engaged the gunmen as police and military closed roads around Eilat. The military said between two and four gunmen were killed. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters.
