Israeli military claims destroys Hamas tunnels in Gaza Strip

Israeli aircraft have bombarded a town in the north of the besieged Gaza Strip several times ahead of expected protests by Palestinians against the United States moving its embassy to Jerusalem al-Quds.

Warplanes fired seven rockets at a farm in the town of Beit Hanun. An army statement claimed that the aircraft targeted a tunnel that had been dug in the buffer zone close to Israel. The Israeli army said the tunnel belonged to the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas.

Palestinian anti-aircraft guns opened fire on the warplanes. There are no reports of casualties from the aerial attacks.

Israel carries out regular air raids on Palestinians in Gaza under the pretext of hitting Hamas’s targets.
