The Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Hamas terrorist organization, warned Sunday that Israel would pay a heavy price for "breaking the rules of the game by destroying a terror tunnel leading from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

The terror group also said that two of its members were killed in the tunnel.

"The enemy's leaders and decision-makers must understand the magnitude of the stupidity with which they conduct the confrontation with the organizations of the struggle," the Al-Qassam Brigade said in a statement.

Israel, according to the Al-Qassam Brigades, will regret its policy of destroying terror tunnels, since the campaign "for the sake of Al-Aqsa continues all the time from above and below the ground and thousands of fighters are preparing for the campaign to liberate "Al-Quds" (the Arabic name for Jerusalem).

Hamas called the destruction of the tunnel an act of "aggression" and a "crime" against Palestinian Arabs. The terror group sent its blessings to the Arabs who have rioted throughout Israel in protest against "the unjust aggressive decisions of the American President Trump."

President Donald Trump became the first American president to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel last Wednesday.
