Israel Executes ‘Significant And Imminent Terror Attack’ By Targeting Tunnels Under Mosque

Israeli officials said they executed an aerial strike on a mosque inside Gaza that was being used as a command center for terrorists who were prepping to carry out “a significant and imminent terror attack.”

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it launched the attack on the command center located under the Al-Ansar Mosque early Sunday morning.

“In a joint IDF and ISA activity, the IAF conducted an aerial strike on an underground terror compound in the Al-Ansar mosque in Jenin,” the IDF said in a statement. “The mosque contained a terror cell of Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror operatives who were organizing an imminent terror attack.”

The officials said that these were the same terrorists who were responsible “for several terror attacks over the last months.”

“Intel was recently received which indicated that the terrorists who were neutralized were organizing an imminent terror attack,” they added. “The mosque was used by the terrorists as a command center to plan the attacks and as a base for their execution.”
