IDF pummels Hamas targets in Gaza in response to rocket attacks

Israeli airstrikes killed two Palestinians riding a motorbike in northern Gaza Strip, local sources said on Tuesday.

The Israeli army destroyed a large Hamas tunnel into Israeli territory from Khan Younis in the Gaza Strip, IDF Spokesman Brig-Gen.

Islamic Jihad's armed wing said two of its members were killed, Haaretz reported.

The latest one, code-named Operation Protective Edge, took place in the summer of 2014 and resulted in the deaths of more than 2,200 Palestinians.

The Israeli army denied any role in the attack, saying in a statement "contrary to Palestinian reports earlier today, the (army) did not attack in the northern Gaza Strip".

Rocket sirens sounded in southern Israeli communities near the border with the Gaza Strip and residents in the southern Israeli cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod reported hearing explosions. The Iron Dome Aerial Defense System intercepted a rocket above the city.

As well as tunnels under the border with Israel, there are also tunnels that run underneath Gaza's border with Egypt, which are used to smuggle in food and other supplies, as well as weapons. The rocket was intercepted by an Iron Dome anti-missile battery.

So far, the IDF has confirmed that Iron Dome shot down one rocket launched from Gaza.

The IDF pounded Hamas targets inside Gaza on Monday night in response to several rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists at Israel earlier.

"The enemy will pay the price for breaking the rules of engagement with the resistance in Gaza", the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades said in a statement.

In another incident, four Palestinians were injured, two of them wounded seriously, during clashes that broke out east of Gaza with the Israeli army.
