Hamas vows retaliation to Israeli attacks amid tension

BREAKING: Rocket FIRED at Israel as Middle East WAR fears loom

The Israeli military said that it is clear that Hamas is behind the tunnel.

The students had reportedly marched to the border in protest around 9 a.m., and were met with live fire from Israeli forces. At least one was intercepted by the Iron Dome system, but one landed in a kindergarten in the town of Sderot, without causing injuries.

Several other students were reportedly treated on the scene for severe tear-gas inhalation.

Four Palestinians were killed and over 1,000 others were injured in clashes that lasted over the past three days in West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip, against the USA move on Jerusalem.

Her identity remained unknown.

The Salafi Islamic terror group Tawhid al-Jihad, which has in the past sought to overthrow Hamas's rule in Gaza, later claimed responsibility for the rocket launches.

Israel's army announced Sunday it destroyed an incomplete tunnel from Gaza that stretched into Israeli territory.

The IDF used explosives to destroy another tunnel from Gaza on October 30, killing at least seven Palestinians.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - now occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of a future Palestinian state. The Qassam Brigades statement did, however, reference the terror group's attempts to attack Israeli via the tunnels.

Besides the steps taken by the IDF against the terror tunnels, Hamas has restraint forces in order to prevent terrorists from closing in on areas near the Israeli border.
