Israeli aircraft have struck out at smuggle tunnels along the Gaza-Egypt border, the Reuters news agency has reported.

Residents said three strikes early on Wednesday sent hundreds of people fleeing the Gaza town of Rafah, Hamas officials said.

Witnesses said a bomb or missile caused a large explosion, but there was no reports of any casualties.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was checking the report.

The strike is said to have been a response to Tuesday’s attack by Gaza militants on an Israeli military vehicle.

The vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb while patrolling the Gaza border, killing one soldier and wounding three others.
