"The Air Force struck two terror targets in the Gaza Strip".
Ramallah:Over two dozen Palestinians have been injured in Israeli artillery and air strikes against the besieged Gaza Strip, amid escalating tensions in the occupied territories in the wake of the United States president's recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as the Israeli capital.
He did not elaborate on how Israel knew Hamas was responsible for the tunnel, which he said reached to within 1km (0.6 miles) of the nearest Israeli civilian community.
According to Conricus, the tunnel stretched from the area of the city of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip to hundreds of metres (yards) inside Israeli territory.
In one of them, a rocket hit the southern Israeli city of Sderot, although Israeli public radio said it did not explode and did not cause any casualties.
The price of human rights
It has helped to prevent violations, obtain justice for wrongs, and strengthen national and global human rights laws and safeguards.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said that 25 people were injured in the fist air strikes on Gaza. They followed three rocket attacks during Friday's Palestinian "day of rage" over Trump's decision.
The military retaliated on Friday with air strikes on what it said were two targets.
In a first, violence spilled into Israel itself, with Arab protesters blocking a major highway in the northern part of the country and hurling rocks at a bus and motorcycle rider, injuring two slightly.
A previously unknown group calling itself the Salahedin Brigades claimed responsibility for one of the attacks.
