Israel strikes Hamas targets in Gaza after soldiers wounded

Israel strikes Hamas targets in Gaza after soldiers wounded

"We will hunt down those responsible for yesterday's incident", Lieberman said on Sunday, adding that Hamas was "ultimately responsible" for what happens in Gaza.

This tells us everything we need to know about Hamas.

Al-Emadi, whose country maintains contacts with the Islamic militant group Hamas and has hosted its leaders, coordinates Qatar's relief and reconstruction projects in Gaza. "People who live in glass houses should not throw stones", he said. "We will respond appropriately", said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The military said its airstrikes were part of its expanded response to the attack, in which two of the soldiers were seriously wounded.

"I came to you straight from a visit to the Gaza perimeter, where I received security briefings on the incident and its ramifications".

The IDF called it a "severe terrorist attack" with the potential to stir up clashes.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the explosion, which occurred along the southern frontier of the territory, controlled by the Islamist group Hamas. An IED was connected to a flagpole displaying the Palestinian flag that had been attached to the security fence during a large demonstration on the Gazan border on Friday.

The pre-sale of Venezuelan own cryptocurrency " Petro ", which is backed by the country's oil reserves, has started. Skeptics say that concerns about Venezuela's financial solvency will likely limit investor interest, and the U.S.

Liberman visited the injured soldiers, accompanied by Soroka Medical Center Director Dr. Shlomi Kodesh.

"Senior Hamas officials simply send you to do the work for them at the risk of your life". When they got near the fence, the bomb went off.

Saturday's explosion sparked a round of strikes over the weekend.

In response Israel's army said it attacked "18 terror targets belonging to the Hamas terror organisation" in two waves of air strikes.

The army also reported that a "launch was identified from the Gaza Strip at Israeli territory", with a projectile hitting near a home in a southern Israeli community.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Monday confirmed that the "underground infrastructure" destroyed by the Israeli Airforce overnight according to the IDF Spokesperson, was a terror tunnel.
