Israeli Jets Pound Hamas Positions in Gaza After Bomb Explodes on Border

Israeli Jets Pound Hamas Positions in Gaza After Bomb Explodes on Border

A spokesman for Hamas, the dominant Palestinian group in the Gaza Strip and Israel's arch foe, said the military was "marketing fake achievements" to boost the morale of soldiers and Israelis living near the enclave.

"It is time for the global community to recognize that the Gaza aid money is being buried underground", he added, addressing recent attempts at the United Nations to raise funds for Gaza, which is facing a severe humanitarian crisis.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group said the attack was a response to "Zionist terrorism" and called on Palestinians to carry out further attacks to "foil the Zionist-American plot to obliterate the Palestinian cause". "I would recommend that Hamas invest its money in the welfare of Gaza residents, because by the end of the year the entire tunnel project will be destroyed".

Lieberman's Yisrael Beiteinu party is pushing legislation that would allow for Palestinians convicted of fatal attacks on Israelis to be punished by death.

The tunnel, located in southern Israel, passed near the Kerem Shalom crossing between Israel and Gaza.

Britain is expelling 23 Russian diplomats and taking other steps against Russian interests as the two nations' relations plummet. Britain's foreign secretary accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of personally ordering the poisoning of the Skripals.

"Throughout Shabbat, our prayers and thoughts were with the families of the victims of the awful terror attack that took place as the Sabbath began on Friday afternoon".

Israeli war jets struck after midnight with at least four missiles a military facility east of Gaza city, eyewitnesses and Hamas security officials said. It is one in a series of bombs planted by Hamas near the Gaza border fence in an attempt to harm Israeli soldiers.

Furthermore, Palestinians live their lives in fear because of systemic attacks on villages by the Israeli settlers.

The forces also arrested several persons who allegedly assisted Assi to hide or knew his whereabouts and did not reported to the Israeli authorities, the statement said.
