Palestinians killed in Israeli operation to destroy Gaza tunnel

Palestinians killed in Israeli operation to destroy Gaza tunnel

Killed in the explosion were five militants associated with the PIJ, including two senior leaders and two members of Hamas' military during a rescue operation, according to the group.

All IDF activity took place inside Israeli territory; indeed, the IDF had known about the tunnel, but had chosen to act only when it crossed underground into Israeli territory, the statement added.

Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner was also at the talks in Ramallah which included Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, Israeli Finance Minster Moshe Khaon, and top Israeli defense ministry official Yoav Mordechai. Islamic Jihad would be the ideal partner for such a scheme.

Iran "supports the resistance in Palestine as well", al-Arouri said, in remarks translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

At least eight Palestinian men lost their lives and more than 10 others sustained injuries when Israeli fighter jets bombarded and destroyed a lifeline tunnel in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip earlier in the day.

Following an announcement in February, Nick Cave has come under fire for two scheduled tour stops at Menorah Arena in Tel Aviv this November.

Dr. Eitan Shamir, former director of the National Security Doctrine Department in Israel's Ministry of Strategic Affairs, agrees that Islamic Jihad-and, by extension, Tehran-is asserting itself in the Gaza Strip. The Jewish state has argued that agreements between Jerusalem and Ramallah are meaningless, since Abbas does not represent the Arab population in Gaza. While it remains yet to be clarified, the timing of the attack was interesting given the Palestinian unity government was preparing to take over Gaza. Hamas and the Palestinian Authority reward its terrorists for every Jew killed, continue the practice, and even receive foreign aid for doing so.

"The IDF [Israel Defence Forces] does not intend to escalate the situation but stands prepared for a variety of scenarios", the spokesman said.

Israeli authorities say most of the Palestinians killed were carrying out knife, gun or car-ramming attacks.

There did not appear to be any connection with the tunnel incident.

Hamas has ruled Gaza since a near civil war with Fatah, based in the occupied West Bank, in 2007.

A tunnel was found under a different school in June, Ynet reported.
