According to the military, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) launched an offensive in the Gaza Strip on Thursday night. The attack comes after several rockets were fired from southern Lebanon towards the Israeli border earlier today.
According to IDF reports, warplanes hit two underground tunnels from the cities of Beit Hanoun and Khan Yunis.
At the same time, they noted that “the two tunnels did not cross into Israeli territory and did not pose a threat to Israeli residents.” Also, two weapons production facilities used by the Palestinian Hamas movement were attacked.

For its part, Hamas’s military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that its air defense systems had repelled attacks by Israeli planes. Also, Hamas members are said to be firing anti-aircraft rockets into the air.
The Israeli bombings came amid an emergency meeting of the defense cabinet called by the country’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. At the start of the meeting, Tel Aviv announced that it would “hit back at its enemies, and they will pay the price for any aggression”.
