The Israel Air Force attacked a smuggling tunnel in the northern Gaza Strip overnight Saturday in response to rocket fire directed at communities enveloping the Hamas-controlled territory.
Military spotters reported precise and accurate hits against the tunnel which was used for terrorist operations, the IDF spokesperson said in a statement.

The Hamas terror organization is viewed directly responsible for the fire emanating from Gaza, the IDF said.
