Israeli Jets Attack Gaza Strip

The army's announcement came after the Israeli Air Force bombed the tunnel, located close to the border with Egypt, on Saturday night, and said that it was shutting down the Kerem Shalom border crossing, which facilitates the entry of hundreds of supplies into the Gaza Strip daily, until further notice.

It is at least the third Gaza terror tunnel destroyed by the IDF in recent months.

Overall, Israel's army has demolished three cross-border tunnels emanating from Gaza since October, including one built by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group. The IDF said the tunnel was used to smuggle weapons and terrorists into both Israel and Egypt. The destruction of the tunnel was carried out by the Southern Command, in the area of the Kerem Shalom crossing area, inside Israeli territory.

Earlier Motzoei Shabbos, the IDF closed the Kerem Shalom crossing, and it is to remain closed throughout Sunday.

"I am also surprised that in these days of reconciliation [between Hamas and Fatah], that this tunnel was dug in the direction of Israel and fro there to Egypt". In a statement, the Palestinian Interior Ministry said the fisherman had been shot by Egyptian army forces.

All of this was established before the Knights went out and beat the Auburn Tigers, staking a legitimate claim to the title. The Knights even had a parade at Disney World to celebrate their national championship.

The tunnel, which was detected by a new Israeli underground warning system, was attacked by fighter jets.

The IDF destroyed the tunnel on Saturday night, describing its running under the border crossing as both "cynical" and "absurd". Officials said they believed the tunnel may have been meant to enable a Hamas takeover of the crossing.

Commenting on the demolition of the tunnel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that "some people say that when the IDF attacks Gaza they are hitting sand dunes, but that is incorrect".

"We are happy to be able to have those capabilities", Conricus said. Our message to the Gazan leadership and residents of the strip is clear: "invest in the sanctity of life and not in death tunnels".
