As per news report of PTI, late tuesday, the army said fighter jets and attack helicopters "struck an underground infrastructure" for the militant Hamas group. There were no reports of casualties in either attack. Lt Col Jonathan Conricus, a military spokesman, said the tunnel crossed into Israeli territory but posed "no threat" to nearby Israeli communities and that there was not yet an exit on the other side. He said troops will "neutralize" the tunnel in the coming days.
