The tension between the besieged Palestinian enclave and Israel has been on the rise since U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital last week.

Palestinian health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra had informed AFP earlier today that two men were killed "in Beit Lahia in northern Gaza after an Israeli strike targeted a motorcycle".

Israel's military on Tuesday denied it carried out an airstrike which killed two Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

According to Conricus, the tunnel stretched from the area of the city of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip to hundreds of metres (yards) inside Israeli territory.

Hours after the destruction of the terror tunnel that infiltrated into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip, the IDF is calling the operation method that it utilized "ground breaking".

On Sunday, the Israeli forces destroyed Hamas tunnels in Gaza, however, announcing that the operation hasn't been linked to the recent clashes between Palestinians and police.

The IDF had, in late October, destroyed an Islamic Jihad cross-border attack tunnel, killing 12 terrorists including two senior Islamic Jihad commanders and two Hamas members.

It did not say where the rocket fell or report any casualties.
