The IDF Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) Major-General Yoav Mordechai sends a stern message to the Gaza terrorist regime.
The IDF two weeks ago detonated a terrorist tunnel in Israeli territory, an area under Israeli Sovereignty. We are aware of ongoing efforts by the Palestine Islamic Jihad against Israel. They are playing with fire not just against themselves but Hamas as well as on the backs of innocent Gaza residents. The same for Jihad leaders in Damascus (mentioning their names).
