He accused Israeli forces of intruding nearly 200 metres into Gazan territory to seek for tunnels leading into southern Israel which have escalated tensions between the two sides.
He criticized the move as bold violation of the Egypt-mediated ceasefire signed in 2014.


The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine on Friday said it will not keep silence while Israel has continued crimes against Palestinians. Three days of mortar and tank fire between Israel and Palestinian militants, as well as Israeli air strikes, have raised concerns of a new war in the Hamas-run territory.
