More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed during Israel's 22-day offensive in the Gaza Strip

(From Maan News)

Israel's air force struck a tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday evening, the army and witnesses said.

Palestinians in Rafah, near the border with Egypt, described a chaotic scene. Medical officials said no injuries were reported.

An emailed statement from the army said the site was targeted in response to rocket fire.

"The IDF holds the Hamas terrorist organization solely responsible for maintaining the calm in the Gaza Strip and for any terrorist activity emanating from it," the statement noted.

Two rounds of projectiles struck Israel late Monday and Tuesday morning, Israeli media reported.
