Two Palestinians killed in Gaza, Israel denies attack claim

IDF Warns Hamas: Terror Tunnels will Become Your 'Death Trap'

Hamas threatened Israel with a "heavy price" for demolishing the tunnel.

Local media identified the two people killed as members of the al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic Jihad.

The rocket launches in the direction of Israel from the Gaza Strip were resumed after a three-month break after US President Donald Trump ordered to transfer the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on December 6 and recognized the city as the capital of the Jewish state.

In response to this attack, an IDF tank and the IAF targeted Hamas terror posts in the southern Gaza Strip.

At least two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip, with the second intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system, the army said on Monday. The alleged incident took place near Beit Lahiya.




After the rocket fire, Israeli aircraft and a tank attacked Hamas sites in the Strip, the army said, noting that it holds the terror group, which runs Gaza, responsible for all rocket attacks. On Friday, two protesters were shot dead in skirmishes with Israeli troops along Gaza's border.

Update: Reshet Bet says Iron Dome successfully intercepted 2 rockets from Gaza.

Conricus said the tunnel began in the central Gazan town of Khan Younis and stretched for over a kilometer (half a mile) across the border and into Israel. Palestinian security officials in the enclave said the strikes hit two Hamas posts.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, told reporters that Israel had used a new set of "tools" developed since a 2014 war with Hamas in order to destroy the tunnel.

Four other Gazans, including two Hamas militants, have died since the announcement last Wednesday.
