Israel carries out air strike in Gaza Strip, closes crossing

Locals watch the funeral procession on Saturday

The Israeli Air Force fired, on Saturday at night, at least two missiles into a siege-busting tunnel near the Egyptian border, in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The army stated that the tunnel had been identified and destroyed by a combination of advanced technology, intelligence and operational capability.

The crossing is the Gaza Strip's main line of supplies. "This is a key mission for us and our intention is to allow quiet and to deter Hamas so we can continue to build the obstacle".

The announcement stressed that the tunnel constituted a blatant violation of Israeli sovereignty, endangering the citizens of Israel and sabotaging the humanitarian efforts that Israel is making for the citizens of Gaza.

Hamas initially said a typical smuggling tunnel was destroyed, but had no immediate response to the Israeli announcement.

"It could also have served to transfer terrorists from the Gaza strip into Egypt in order to attack Israeli targets from Egypt".

Palestinian authorities say a Gaza fisherman died a day after Egyptian naval forces shot him off the coast. We have responded to attacks against the State of Israel, which we've done with a highly systematic attack on infrastructure aimed against us. The operation was carried out by the IDF Southern Command, in the border crossing area, in Israeli territory. "The message to Gaza's leadership and residents is clear - invest in the sanctity of life and not these burial tunnels", he said.

The tunnel destroyed early Saturday morning is believed to have been a Hamas tunnel which stretched for nearly a kilometer running under the Kerem Shalom crossing near the gas pipeline and continued into Egyptian territory.

United Nations trucks carrying building materials for projects funded by UNRWA arrive in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip after crossing the Israeli Kerem Shalom crossing on December 10, 2013. The military released photos and video of a wide tunnel with concrete paneled walls.
