Palestinians killed in Israeli operation to destroy Gaza tunnel

Palestinian security forces patrolling Bethlehem in 2013

The detonation of the tunnel, which travelled under the border fence near the southern city of Khan Younis, was disclosed by the Israeli military on Monday.

Seven militants were killed and ten injured after the Israeli army bombarded on Monday a tunnel underneath the borders between southeast Gaza Strip and Israel, medics and security sources said. Islamic Jihad threatened a reprisal.

Hamas movement rejected security communication between Palestine and Israel, stating that it only serves the Israeli occupation.

Senior Islamic Jihad commander Arafat Abu Marashad, who heads the terrorist group in central Gaza, along with his deputy and two of his Hamas operatives are reported to be among the dead.

The handover is part of the latest round of Egyptian-sponsored reconciliation talks between Hamas and Fatah, which split in 2007 after the militant Hamas won a majority in the Palestinian parliament and seized control of the Gaza strip.

The incident raised tensions between Israel and the Palestinians, with both Hamas and Islamic Jihad vowing revenge. "I emphasize that the explosion took place on our territory".

Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram termed BJP demand's of Ahmed Patel's resignation as "outrageous". Two suspected ISIS operatives were arrested by the Gujarat Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) three days ago.

Following the meeting Greenblatt tweeted his satisfaction, writing "important progress last night between Israeli and Palestinian side". The school was closed for ten days.

Israeli soldiers sit on a tank close to the Israeli border with the Gaza Strip on October 30, 2017, near Kibbutz Kissufim in southern Israel.

"The terror organization Hamas is responsible for everything that occurs in the Gaza Strip or emanates from there". Israel has warned that it will not accept a unity government that includes Hamas if it does not disarm and recognise the country, among other demands.

The IDF said that it was still under active construction by Hamas at the time of demolition.

The statement by Fatah also pointed to reporting by al-Mayadeen news channel, which quoted sources in the Palestinian presidency as saying that Abbas assured the delegation that "the Palestinian government is abiding by global agreements".
