Israel destroys Gaza tunnel, killing seven Palestinians

In April 2016, Israel's military said it had located and destroyed a tunnel extending from Gaza into Israel in the first such discovery since the 2014 conflict.

According to Palestinian sources, the tunnel, built after the 2014 war with Gaza, crossed into Israel near the Palestinian city of Khan Yunis, in the southern Gaza Strip.

Hamas said in a post on Twitter that that the attack constitutes "a new war against Gaza people". The timing of the attack was unexpected. When Mohamed drove the car away from the intersection, an Israeli settler fired live bullets, which penetrated the car's windshield. "Comments like this seriously damage the security of Israel and the IDF", Liberman said. The IDF said that it was still under active construction by Hamas at the time of demolition.

"This is a blatant violation of Israeli sovereignty, a situation that cannot be accepted and in light of which the IDF acted", said IDF Spokesperson Brig.

Seven terrorists were killed in the operation, including two high-ranking members of the Iranian-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Arafat Abu Murshad, its central Gaza commander; and his deputy Hassan Abu Hassanein. Israel was at pains to point out that its action against the tunnel was carried out on its own side of the border.

U.S. special Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt was in Israel Sunday as part of the Trump administration's attempt to get Israel-Palestinian peace talks back on track.

The victim were identified as Muhammad Musa, 26, and his sister, Latifa, 33, from Salfit-district village of Deir Ballout.

Why is this information concerning the exact location of the detonation important? Muhammad was left to bleed at the scene before being taken to an Israeli hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Islamic Jihad, with 10,000 fighters in the Gaza Strip, has threatened retaliation.

"This is a massacre", said senior Islamic Jihad leader Khaled al-Batash.

Abu Zuhri continued: "In the arena of the fighting, the resistance is very strong, and can inflict heavy blows upon the Zionist enemy". Hamas leaders recently concluded a unity agreement with the Palestinian Authority.

"We are not interested in an escalation but we are ready for all scenarios", the army said Monday.

Conricus said the tunnel was detected less than two miles from the Israeli village of Kissufim, but that no Israelis had been in danger.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed what he called "breakthrough technology" in dealing with tunnel threats.
