The IDF attacked a terror tunnel and two naval sites of Hamas during the night in response to yesterday’s infiltration during which an empty IDF position was set on fire, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

“The Hamas terror organization is accountable for all threats originating from the Gaza Strip, above and below ground, and will bear the consequences for its actions against Israeli civilians and Israeli sovereignty,” the IDF spokesperson tweeted. “The IDF views these continued attempts with great severity, specifically Hamas’ daily attempts to damage Israeli security infrastructure & threats to the safety of Israeli civilians. The IDF is determined to fulfill its mission to protect Israeli civilians.”

The infiltration was recorded and published by Al-Jazeera. In the video, the terrorists are seen cutting the border fence and crossing into Israel before setting fire to the empty IDF sniper’s position.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, in response to the IDF attack, tweeted, “Tonight, the IDF destroyed another tunnel that belongs to the Hamas terror organization. The attempts to attack Israel from the air, at the fence and underground will be blocked with an iron wall and the IDF’s might. The heads of Hamas should realize that their military project is a failure and invest in improving the lives of the Gaza residents.”
