Israeli planes have carried out several airstrikes on tunnels
Israeli planes have carried out several airstrikes on tunnels in the Gaza Strip in response to rocket attacks by Palestinian militants, the Israeli army's press service said on Wednesday.

The airstrike targeted three tunnels connecting the Gaza Strip and Egypt. The tunnels are used to smuggle goods and weapons into the enclave, the subject of an Israeli blockade.

"In one of the tunnels, secondary explosions followed, indicating that it was used by militants to smuggle arms," an army spokeswoman said.

On Tuesday evening, Palestinian militants launched two rockets at southern Israel after Israeli warplanes had bombed six tunnels.

The Israeli military said militants had fired about 20 rockets into Israeli territory over the weekend.

A three-week long Israeli attack on the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip killed around 1,300 Palestinians and injured another 5,000 in December-January. Around 50,000 people were also left homeless by the ground and air assault, which was launched in response to the firing of homemade rockets at southern Israeli border towns by Palestinian militants.
