Israel closes Gaza's only commercial border crossing until further notice

Israel closes Gaza's only commercial border crossing until further notice”

The attack was carried out on Saturday, when the Israeli jets bombed an area that was situated at the east of the southern town of Rafah, and it was witnessed by various residents of Gaza.

On the other end, it also extended hundreds of meters into Egypt, which could have allowed fighters in Gaza to attack Israeli positions from the Sinai Peninsula, he said. The crossing has been closed until further notice. Underground passageways were a distinct advantage for Hamas in the 2014 armed conflict with Israel.

Recently, tensions have run high along the border, where Israel continues to build an anti-tunnel wall and where three offensive tunnels were recently unearthed, as well as a recent surge in rocket fire Haaretz said. But Conricus said this did not mark "more of the same" since it involved the most advanced technological means Israel has deployed.

IDF Spokesman Brig.Gen. Ronen Manelis said that Hamas was still working on the tunnel, which was clearly considered a significant asset by the terrorist organization. The demolition of a tunnel belonging to the Islamic Jihad militant group in November killed a dozen militants.

In another report, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu has come to India, to visit, Narendra Modi, as a sign of the ongoing friendship between the two nations. "The destruction of the network of attack tunnels is an essential part of our policy of systematically harming Hamas' strategic capabilities". " "As you saw in the past two months, there is only death in these tunnels".

The Israel Defense Forces destroyed a Hamas terror tunnel.

Conricus said the crossing itself was a potential target, as well as the gas and fuel pipelines.

"It was a terror tunnel created to strike strategic Israel assets", he said.
