Israel Destroys Hamas Tunnel in Gaza

The incident took place near the Jewish settlement of Mevo Dotan, west of the northern West Bank town of Jenin. One suffered severe trauma to the head and is in serious condition. "It was the culmination of extensive efforts since the terror attack, during which a number of accomplices, who are suspected of either helping him (Assi) or knowing his whereabouts, were interrogated", the Shin Bet said in a statement.

Human rights groups condemn such measures as collective punishment but Netanyahu's right-wing government says they are a deterrent to attacks on Israelis. "We will not rest until we bring all those who cooperate with terror to justice, we will not allow terror to become an accepted norm". Israel's Shin Bet security service said he had spent time in prison for security offenses and was released past year. He did a U-turn and rammed his vehicle into the soldiers standing outside their jeep, accelerating into them, eliminating any doubt that the attack was deliberate.

The terrorist originally claimed the incident was a vehicle accident.

Qabha's family, however, maintained that it was an accident. Assi was known to Haifa social services. The statement added that it did not expect a Hamas retaliation for the demolition of the tunnels.




Friday's auto attack was the latest in a wave of unrest since President Trump announced his commitment to relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

Israeli forces on Sunday knocked out a tunnel in the Gaza Strip dug allegedly to mount cross-border attacks, the military said.

The papers report that the Shin Bet security agency said Saturday that 26-year-old suspect Ala Qabha confessed to carrying out the attack, and told investigators that he deliberately meant to kill Israeli soldiers.
