Israel dropped leaflets over the Gaza Strip on Sunday warning that “the battle is ongoing” against leaders of Hamas, even as Israeli sources told NBC News that Israel’s mission to neutralize militant tunnels would soon be declared over.

The leaflet, addressed to “the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip,” warned that the violence was not finished. “We want you to pass the following message to your leadership that is hiding underground,” it said. “The battle is ongoing. All the leaders of Hamas and other terrorist groups are unsafe.”
