Gaza terrorists succeeded in cutting through the Gaza/Israel border fence last night. They infiltrated into Israel and burned down an IDF sniper outpost that was empty. In retaliation, the IDF Air Force destroyed a Hamas terror tunnel and some naval boats.

Destroying IDF Outpost

No country can allow border infiltrations by an enemy force. Especially if they are intent on killing you. These terrorists were lucky no IDF soldiers were on duty at that location.  Otherwise, they would have shot them on the spot.  After burning the IDF outpost, they then ran back into Gaza.

Israeli Airforce Retaliates

Israel will not allow such aggression to go unpunished. In retaliation, the IDF sent planes to bomb a Hamas terror tunnel. In addition, they bombed some Hamas boats preparing to take part in a flotilla protest of the siege on Gaza.
