Israeli jets shell tunnel near Egyptian border with Gaza

Israel "targeted a terror infrastructure using fighter jets in the southern Rafah region, adjacent to the Egypt-Gaza Strip border", an army statement said.

Israel National News reported that IDF's spokesperson Ronen Manelis says that the tunnel was located several days ago.

Gaza is run by Islamist group Hamas, which has fought three wars with Israel and is designated a terrorist group by Western countries and Israel.

United Nations trucks carrying building materials for projects funded by UNRWA arrive in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip after crossing the Israeli Kerem Shalom crossing on December 10, 2013.

In its statement at the time, the army referred to the target of the attack on January 4 as "significant terror infrastructure".

The tunnel that was destroyed crossed into Israel near the Kerem Shalom Crossing, he said.

A Palestinian fisherman, who was shot Friday night by Egyptian navy forces in southern Gaza Strip, died in a hospital in Rafah town in Gaza Saturday morning, according to the Health Ministry in Gaza. "Hamas needs to understand that we will not allow these offensives, and that we will respond with even greater might".

According to Conricus, Israeli air strikes late Saturday along with other unspecified means were used to destroy the tunnel.

Similar clashes took place in 17 different locations within the West Bank, the IDF said, while also continuing efforts to catch the perpetrators of a terrorist attack which killed Rabbi Raziel Shevach on a West Bank road last Tuesday.

He said he was not aware of any casualties from the destruction of the tunnel, which was still being built.

The strike came shortly after the military announced it would not be opening the Kerem Shalom Crossing into the Gaza Strip on Sunday, following a "situational assessment". Earlier Motzoei Shabbos, the IDF closed the Kerem Shalom crossing, and it is to remain closed throughout Sunday.
