JERUSALEM (AP) -- The Israeli military says it has foiled an attempt by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip to infiltrate southern Israel by sea.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a military spokesman, said four attackers were killed Tuesday, shortly after coming ashore.

He says troops spotted the attackers with hand grenades and assault rifles. One Israeli soldier was lightly injured.

Lerner says it's the first such infiltration effort in recent memory, and that the army is trying to determine how the men made it so far.

In Gaza, Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.
