Two Palestinians killed in Israeli air strike on Gaza

Two Palestinians killed in Israeli air strike on Gaza

Israeli forces on Sunday destroyed a "significant" cross-border attack tunnel from the Gaza Strip, which the military said was being dug by the enclave's dominant Islamist terror group, Hamas.

In response, the IDF struck Hamas targets in northern Gaza.

The incident comes amid ongoing protests in the occupied West Bank, occupied East Jerusalem and besieged Gaza over US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"Contrary to Palestinian reports. the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) did not attack in the northern Gaza Strip", the IDF said in a statement, denying any involvement, as cited by Reuters.

He did not elaborate on how Israel knew Hamas was responsible for the tunnel, which he said reached to within 1km (0.6 miles) of the nearest Israeli civilian community.

Shortly afterward, Israel responded with tank fire and air strikes targeting positions of Hamas.

On Monday, Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted a rocket fired by militants in Gaza.

Israel Defense Forces spokesman Jonathan Conricus said the tunnel, which originated in the city of Khan Younis, had penetrated several hundred meters inside Israeli territory, finishing a kilometer away from the nearest village in Israel. The rocket was successfully intercepted by an Iron Dome battery.

"In response to the rocket, an IDF tank and the IAF targeted Hamas terror posts in the southern Gaza Strip", the IDF Spokesperson's Unit wrote on its official Twitter page.

Several rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza over the weekend, including one that hit near a home in the city of Sderot and another one that damaged a kindergarten. At least ten terrorists were injured, of which two were killed.

In late October, the IDF destroyed a cross-border Palestinian Islamic Jihad attack tunnel, killing 12 terrorists including two senior Islamic Jihad commanders and two Hamas members.
