IAF aircraft attacked a smuggling tunnel in the south of the Gaza Strip. The IDF stated that the target was directly hit. The attack came in response to the grad rockets fired into Israel in recent days.
Israeli ambassador to the UN Meron Reuven has submitted a letter of complaint to UN over the January 31 grad attack, writing that Israel expects the international community to condemn the actions. (Hanan Greenberg and Yitzhak Benhorin)
