Israeli war jets strike on SE Gaza, no injuries reported: medics

Israeli war jets strike on SE Gaza, no injuries reported: medics

The attack was carried out while army drones flew over many areas in Rafah, and other parts of southern Gaza.

Medical sources in Gaza said that Abdullah Zeidan, 33, from the Shati refugee camp, was shot in the chest by Egyptian forces near the naval border with Egypt in the south of the coastal enclave.

"Hamas must understand that we will not permit these attacks and we will respond with even greater force", Netanyahu said in remarks to Israeli media before departing on his trip to India.

The IDF Spokesperson's Office said that on Sunday morning that a Hamas terrorist tunnel that penetrated Israeli territory under the Kerem Shalom crossing had been destroyed.

The announcement stressed that the tunnel constituted a blatant violation of Israeli sovereignty, endangering the citizens of Israel and sabotaging the humanitarian efforts that Israel is making for the citizens of Gaza.

In its statement, the army added, "The Hamas terror organization is accountable for all activity in and from the Gaza strip". To press that point home, there will be a closure of the Kerem Shalom crossing, as a necessary security measure. The tunnel could have also been used to transfer militants and arms for attacks in Israel or Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, he said.

The Erez Crossing opened a day later, and Kerem Shalom was reopened on December 17.

The military said in a statement that the tunnel extended from the Palestinian town of Rafah, staring about 900 meters from the Israeli border, and was dug below the border crossing and under pipelines used to transport natural gas and gasoline into Gaza. "There are people who say that the IDF attacks sand dunes - this isn't true".

Last week, the IDF struck what many assumed to be a tunnel in the Gaza Strip, following a series of mortar attacks.

"Every missile or shell we fired was at a valuable target, at underground targets", Eisenkot said in March "We have developed a capability that allows us to strike them".
