Gaza Terrorists Dead, More Wounded in IDF Advanced Technology Tunnel Explosion

Gaza Terrorists Dead, More Wounded in IDF Advanced Technology Tunnel Explosion

Israel's military said Monday that it destroyed an attack tunnel that led into its territory from the Gaza Strip, killing at least seven Palestinian militants, including a senior commander of the Islamic Jihad group and two members of Hamas.

The Israeli military, for its part, confirmed in a statement that it had destroyed the tunnel, which, it asserted, constituted a violation of the Jewish state's sovereignty. The same source reported that nine others were injured, including one that is in critical condition. The tunnel was being built by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group.

Besides calling it an escalation, Hamas said the Israeli operation was "a desperate attempt which aims to undermine efforts to rebuild Palestinian unity".

UNRWA, the United Nations body that exists exclusively to serve Palestinians "refugees", has yet again discovered a terror tunnel running under one of its schools in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

Earlier this month, the two factions signed an agreement in Cairo allowing for the Fatah-dominated Palestinian Authority to resume control of Gaza - which Hamas seized in a near civil war with Fatah in 2007 - by December 1.

The tunnel was still under construction, according to Manelis, which supports the claim by Gaza's ruling Hamas terrorist organization that operatives were lost in the incident.

"This crime comes in the context of [sowing confusion] and creating tension in the atmosphere in order to thwart the Palestinian national reconciliation", he said, in a statement carried in the official PA news outlet Wafa.

Meanwhile, the entire area around Kissufim was declared a closed military zone by the IDF.

"We are not interested in an escalation, but we are ready for all scenarios" he said. The tunnel extended for over a mile, some of it deep into Israeli territory.

The tunnel was reportedly discovered around two weeks ago, and prompted the United Nations agency to close the school while it sealed the tunnel's opening.

"I told you many times before that we are developing breakthrough technology to deal with the tunnel threat", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told local media on Friday.
