JERUSALEM — Two Israeli soldiers were killed early Saturday during an attack by Hamas militants who emerged through a tunnel from the central Gaza Strip, Israel’s military said. Fighting intensified inside Gaza, and militants continued to fire rockets into southern Israel on the conflict’s 12th day.

The Israeli military identified the slain soldiers as Sergeant Adar Bersano, 20, and Major Amotz Greenberg, a 45-year-old reservist. The army said militants emerging from a tunnel inside Gaza fired machine guns and anti-tank missiles at Israeli forces.
