Two Palestinians martyred in Gaza, Israel denies attack claim

The Israeli army denied any role in the incident and said that contrary to the Palestinian report, the military had not carried out any such drone strike in Gaza.

The tension with Israel in the Gaza Strip has been escalating since U.S. President Donald Trump declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel last week.

A senior security establishment official is quoted anonymously telling Walla News on Shabbos that "Hamas is playing a risky game as Israel views renewed rocket fire from Gaza a very serious".

The destruction of the tunnel did not lead to any deaths, Manelis said, adding that even if there were he was "not sorry", and that Israel will continue to take all measures at its disposal to destroy any cross-border tunnels. The rocket was successfully intercepted by an Iron Dome battery. On Friday, two protesters were shot dead in skirmishes with Israeli troops along Gaza's border.

Residents are reporting hearing multiple explosions and that Iron Dome launched at least two intercept missiles.

It is exceedingly rare for a secretary of state, America's face on the global stage, to be fired or to serve for a year or less. Rex is here", Trump offered, noting that Tillerson was in the building - but not in the room - at the time.

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.

Speaking shortly after it was cleared for publication that the IDF had uncovered a cross-border terror tunnel near the Gaza Strip border, GOC Southern Command Maj.

Over the weekend, several rockets were fired at Israel by terrorists in Gaza, including one that hit near a home in Sderot and another one that damaged a kindergarten.

In retaliation, Israel targeted a number of Hamas positions, killing two Hamas terrorists.

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.
