Gaza's ruling Hamas terror group says it is not giving up on its terrorist tunnel activity.
The crossing was shut down following the discovery and destruction of a mile-long terror tunnel that stretched from Gaza into both Egypt and Israel.
“Just as there is ‘Iron Dome’ for the air, there’s a technological dome of steel underground."
"We have not encountered a tunnel like this one before," said IDF Spokesperson Brigadier General Ronen Manlis.
Israel has six months in which to pass a bill that authorizes the defense establishment to hold the bodies.
During the course of the operation, five terrorist bodies were discovered within Israeli territory.
Hamas wants the Red Cross to demand that Israel give permission, allowing a Hamas search and rescue unit entry into Israel.
Maybe they can swap the bodies of IDF soldiers Goldin and Shaul, and the living Israeli hostages, for an equal number of dead tunnel terrorists.
Here are some the facts we know about the Gaza terror tunnel explosion.
The entire area around Kissufim has been declared a closed military zone. Iron Dome anti-missile systems are deployed.
Iron Dome batteries were deployed in southern Israel in case Hams retaliated for the destruction of the tunnel.
"The presence of a tunnel underneath an UNRWA installation, which enjoys inviolability under international law, is unacceptable," said the UN in a statement.
The Kerem Shalom Crossing "shows how [Israel] is trying to help the people of Gaza under very challenging and trying circumstances," said US peace envoy Jason Greenblatt.
Israel called on the Security Council to strongly and unequivocally condemn Hamas and its repeated abuse of civilian infrastructure, and to designate Hamas group as a terrorist organization.
Six more terrorists are buried alive and 10 others are injured as another tunnel collapses beneath the sands of Gaza.
