Israel carries out air strike in southern Gaza

It was also noted that Kerem Shalom border crossing on the Gaza Strip-Israel border would be closed later in the day for security reasons. In 2007, when the terror group seized control of Gaza, it burned down the industrial area near the Erez crossing into Israel.

In addition, Mordechai informed the Palestinian Authority leadership that due to the extensive construction and strategic military design of the latest tunnel, and its complex design, the IDF has made a decision to close the Kerem Shalom Crossing for the time being.

According to IDF figures, in 2017, over half a million tons of food entered the Strip through Kerem Shalom, along with 3.3 million tons of construction equipment and 12,000 tons of agricultural equipment. It was destroyed in an airstrike in southern Gaza.

Israeli military spokesman Colonel Jonathan Conricus has stated that the tunnel was bombed because it was a terror tunnel that ran underneath strategic facilities. "Hamas must understand that we will not permit these attacks and we will respond with even greater force".

Commenting on the demolition of the tunnel, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that "some people say that when the IDF attacks Gaza they are hitting sand dunes, but that is incorrect".

"This is 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", an IDF statement read. The reports of the attack were then confirmed by the Israeli army as well.

Egypt has been battling Islamic extremists for years in the restive northern part of the Sinai Peninsula, bordering Gaza and Israel. Gen. Mordechai said. "Just as Iron Dome has in the air, there is a technological dome of steel under the ground".

The IDF expects to destroy more tunnels in the near future.

It is at least the third Gaza terror tunnel destroyed by the IDF in recent months.

Israel had been monitoring the tunnel for an "extended" period, but Conricus would not specify how long. Israeli intelligence believes the attacks are from other groups.

"One of the Palestinian fishing boats came under direct fire from the Egyptian army late Friday near the Palestinian-Egyptian naval border, leaving a fisherman martyred", the Ministry said.
