Girl Hurt as Gaza Rocket Explodes Near Kibbutz Kindergarten - Hamas Dug Tunnels for Shalit-Type Attack
One of the tunnels was supposed to allow terrorists into Israel near Netiv HaAsara, and another near Miflasim and Kfar 'Aza. These could have served for staging attacks against Israeli civilians. The two other tunnels could have served for attacks on IDF soldiers, like the one in which Gilad Shalit was abducted and two soldiers killed, near Kerem Shalom in 2006. Terrorists abducted Shalit through a tunnel into Gaza.
The IAF also attacked a smuggling tunnel near Rafiah, a site for manufacturing weapons near Khan Yunes, and a Hamas outpost west of Khan Yunes. Two terrorists were hurt in that attack.
All IDF planes returned safely to base and precise hits on target were reported.
