(Worthy News) - Tensions continued to boil along the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, with the Israel Defense Force (IDF) warning civilians in the area to keep away from the frontier after terrorist groups in the Palestinian enclave threatened retaliation following the destruction of an attack tunnel by Israeli forces on Monday.
At least seven Palestinians were killed -- including a senior Islamic Jihad commander and his deputy -- after Israel blew up a tunnel stretching from the Khan Yunis area in central Gaza into Israeli territory.
Two members of Hamas' military wing were also killed during rescue efforts, in what was the deadliest incident in the Strip since the 50-day war fought with Israel in 2014. [ Source: i24 News (Read More...) ]
