Israel-Gaza tensions boil after tunnel strike kills Islamic Jihad commander

breaking israel news

(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...) ]

  1. Israel, as a nation, has the right to defend itself. If sickos want to put themselves in harms way, stay in some tunnel when they know it's going to be shut down (Israel leaked that they knew about it a day earlier at the least), that is not on Israel.

    The Lord giveth (life) and the Lord taketh (lives), blessed be the Name of the Lord.

    God has the right to kill what He has let be created (humans of any faith, in this case).

    That enemies of Israel blame them for what God does as He protects His people is just what is to be expected of folks too dumb to accept the easiest Way to be reconciled with God - Jesus.

    There is not, and never can be, any greater Prophet than God's very own Word (Himself) come to earth to speak to us, himself.

    His name (in English) is Jesus.
