"The IDF will not abide any attempt to harm Israel or its citizens, and will continue to relentlessly pursue any element invoking terror against the State of Israel" a military statement said.


"The IDF holds Hamas solely responsible for occurrences in Gaza and maintaining the peace there."


Thursday's nightly strike was the IDF's second on Gaza, as the IAF struck targets near Rafah on noon Wednesday, following a mortar shell salvo on southern Israel. The IDF confirmed the strike targeted a tunnel under the Philadelphi Route.


According to the Palestinians, one man was killed in the attack.
