Addressing the deaths of seven Hamas members in a tunnel in south Gaza, a senior military source said they died as a result of explosives they planted in an underground assault tunnel aimed at an IDF target.

"This was designed to enable a significant terror attack," the source said. "In recent days, we have operated in this area, and we will continue to act against the threat of tunnels in the coming days," he added.

The seven Hamas members did not die as a result of an Israeli air strike, the source explained. The tunnel was found by the army a few days ago.
