      The IDF bombed three Hamas arms-smuggling tunnels in Gaza overnight and reported precise hits.

      The hits followed two Kassam rocket attacks at Israel over the Rosh HaShanah holiday. No one was hurt by the rockets, which landed in open fields near Sderot and caused no damage.

      The Israeli planes bombed the tunnels around midnight Sunday night. Three weeks ago, as well, Israel bombed an arms-smuggling tunnel between Gaza and Egypt, in response to Kassam rockets fired at Sdot Negev.

      Earlier this month, three Arabs were killed when a smuggling tunnel collapsed. In the past three years, 107 Arabs were killed in similar accidents, and more than 500 people were wounded, according to Mahmad Abdullah, a member of the Palestinian Civil Rights Center.

      On Sunday afternoon, an IDF armored force fired at and killed two Palestinian terrorists detected attempting to place a bomb alongside the northern Gaza border fence.
