The Israeli Air Force struck a Palestinian Islamic Jihad “attack tunnel” in the Gaza Strip in the early hours of the morning, the Israel Defense Forces says.
The tunnel did not cross into Israeli territory, according to the IDF.
Military spokesperson Ran Kochav tells reporters that the IDF has struck some 140 PIJ targets across the Gaza Strip since the beginning of Operation Breaking Dawn.
The targets include the tunnel, dozens of observation posts and military sites, several rocket launching positions, and eight terror squads en route to committing an attack, he says.
