Israel bombs Gaza Strip, unearths a tunnel for Hamas
Israeli warplanes launched Wednesday several raids against the Gaza Strip on Wednesday after a day of tensions along the border with Israel, the Interior Ministry of the Palestinian territory said.
Airstrikes hit around Gaza’s defunct international airport near the southern city of Rafah and in nearby farming areas, without causing casualties, said the ministry, which is run by Hamas. Israel’s army said it had hit five sites operated by Hamas.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces have uncovered a Hamas tunnel stretching across the border from Gaza. the Israeli army said on Thursday.
The discovery is the second to take place in recent weeks and comes a day after Israel bombed Gaza, injuring four civilians amidst a flare-up in violence on the contentious border.
