IDF Warns Hamas: Terror Tunnels will Become Your 'Death Trap'

Israeli forces on Sunday destroyed a "significant" cross-border attack tunnel from the Gaza Strip, which the military said was being dug by the enclave's dominant Islamist terror group, Hamas.

Hamas, the armed group that controls Gaza, declined to comment.

Recent days have seen a spike in rockets attacks from Gaza, following President Donald Trump's announcement that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The two men were reportedly riding through the town of Beit Lahiya on Tuesday when their motorcycle exploded.

Rocket sirens sounded in southern Israeli communities near the border with the Gaza Strip and residents in the southern Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod reported hearing explosions. The rockets launched by Hamas over Israel had intercepted by the Iron Dome missile shield, with no casualties being reported.

A day before, Israel had announced a massive attack targeting Hamas positions in the southern Gaza Strip.

Several rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza over the weekend, including one that hit near a home in the city of Sderot and another one that damaged a kindergarten. The rocket was intercepted by an Iron Dome anti-missile battery. At least ten terrorists were injured, of which two were killed.

"The enemy will pay the price for breaking the rules of engagement with the resistance in Gaza", the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, told reporters that Israel had used a new set of "tools" developed since a 2014 war with Hamas in order to destroy the tunnel.

In the process of that demolition, 10 gunmen from the group and another two from Hamas were killed - deaths that Israeli sources described as an unintended result of the passage's collapse within Gazan turf.
