An Israeli strike destroyed houses on the Egyptian side of the border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip Monday.

A security source said that Israeli F-16 fired missiles at tunnels and houses adjacent to the border.

“The armed forces stopped filling the tunnels due to the missile attack on the tunnels area,” the source added.

Security officials suggested that local residents in the area leave their homes; however the residents refused, fearing their houses would be broken into.

In related news, a Palestinian who was being treated in Arish Public Hospital died from injuries he sustained during the Israeli attack on Gaza. The body was transferred to Gaza via the Rafah border crossing.
