Israel's operation on Saturday was conducted against a backdrop of a number of rocket attacks against Israel, emanating from the Gaza Strip. The IDF called the tunnel, which stretched from Gaza to Egypt, a "severe breach of Israel's sovereignty".

Earlier Saturday, Israel's defence ministry said the Kerem Shalom goods crossing between Gaza and Israel near Rafah would be closed from Sunday "until further notice".

The Erez Crossing opened a day later, and Kerem Shalom was reopened on December 17. The airstrike on the tunnel took place late Saturday night. Meanwhile, the military officials have noted that more tunnels will likely be destroyed in coming months as the barrier nears completion, TOI added.

"The Hamas terror organisation is accountable for all activity in and from the Gaza Strip", it said. "The destruction of the attack tunnel infrastructure is an essential element of the policy of consistently harming Hamas's strategic capabilities".

Palestinian security sources in Gaza said nobody was wounded in the Israeli strike.

Seattle Seahawks reportedly hire Brian Schottenheimer as OC

"One of the Palestinian fishing boats came under direct fire from the Egyptian army late Friday near the Palestinian-Egyptian naval border, leaving a fisherman martyred", the Ministry said.

"Some time ago, the Israel Defense Forces, using aviation, attacked the terrorist infrastructure in the area of southern [Palestinian city of] Rafah near the Egypt-Gaza Strip border", the press release reads.

Conricus said as the tunnel entered Egyptian territory; the army was in contact with Cairo about its destruction but would not elaborate on the extent of the cooperation. While Israel holds Hamas responsible for everything that occurs in the Strip, the statement did not mention the group ruling the enclave.

Violent riots raged in the Gaza Strip and across the West Bank as parts remain under military lock down following the shooting of a settler in the Nablus area last week, the Israel Defense Forces reported Friday.
