Israel’s military said it had discovered a cross-border tunnel on Thursday built by the Islamist group Hamas from the Gaza Strip during a rare flare-up of violence along a border that has been largely quiet since a 2014 war.
Israel’s military said it had discovered on Thursday a cross-border tunnel built by the Islamist Hamas group from the Gaza Strip, a day after a rare flare-up of violence along the frontier.
Hamas said that a man who succumbed to wounds suffered in Monday’s bus bombing in Jerusalem was the terrorist who placed a bomb in the vehicle.
(JTA) — Hamas said for the first time that it is holding two Israeli men and the remains of two Israeli soldiers. The Islamist group’s military wing released a televised statement Friday through official Hamas media, The Jerusalem Post reported.
The Arabic Twitter account for Hamas’ military wing was closed down, two weeks after its English account was suspended.
Hamas must prevent the firing of rockets from Gaza on Israel, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asserted.
Nissim Hakmon and his neighbors say they hear banging and clattering at night. They are convinced it can only mean one thing: Hamas is tunneling under their homes from Gaza and will one day emerge, guns blazing, to attack or kidnap them.
Palestinian “heroes” are digging tunnels to be used in future attacks on Israel, Hamas’ senior political leader said.
A rocket fired from Gaza landed in southern Israel and IDF fighter jets reportedly responded with an attack on Hamas targets inside the Palestinian-controlled coastal strip.
An Israeli aircraft attacked a group of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday who the military said planned to detonate a bomb at the border with Israel, and a Palestinian militant faction said one of its men was killed.
