Israel Strikes Underground Tunnel In Gaza

author Wednesday June 22, 2011 16:56author by Kevin Murphy - IMEMC & Agencies Report post

The Israeli air force attacked an underground tunnel running from the Gaza strip into Israel. According to military officials the strike was in response from a rocket fired from the Gaza strip into the Nagev. Neither incident caused death or injury.

An Israeli helicopter attacked an underground tunnel leading from the Gaza strip into Israel on Wednesday morning apparently in response to a mortar attack fired from Gaza into the Nagev on Tuesday night.

The incident was the first since March when Hamas fired a rocket at an Israeli school bus killing one. I9sraeli responded with air and ground strikes that killed 19 Palestinians.

In a statement the Israeli military said that the tunnel was used to transport terror suspects from Gaza into Israel.

Since Israel imposed its siege on Gaza in 2006 secret tunnels running from Gaza into Egypt and Israel have become necessary for transporting essential supplies into Gaza including medicine, food and construction material.
