IDF Located, Neutralized New Terror Tunnel Crossing into Israel

A Palestinian protester runs for cover from teargas fired by Israeli troops during clashes on the Israeli border with Gaza Sunday Dec. 10 2017

The tunnel had electricity and other amenities, such as ventilation and communications equipment, suggesting that it was a significant tunnel for Hamas, the IDF also said in a statement.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian school students in the eastern area of the town of Khuzaa - along the border with Israel - in southern Gaza.

"We see this as a severe violation of Israeli sovereignty and we hold the Hamas terror organization responsible", said Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.

The tunnel, which had been monitored for several weeks, was demolished on Saturday, the IDF announced Sunday. It now seems that there is a possibility to discover additional terror tunnels, which challenges Hamas from restraining itself. A network of Gaza tunnels allowed Hamas gunmen to blindside Israel's superior forces during the 2014 war and the Israelis, with U.S. help, have since stepped up work on counter-measures.




Hamas has built a sophisticated network of terror tunnels in the Gaza Strip and running into Israel, used for storing weapons, smuggling and terrorist infiltrations into Israel. Hamas did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

This is the second Gaza attack tunnel Israel has uncovered and destroyed in the past six weeks. The 3 billion shekel ($850 million) wall will span the 51-kilometer border. His Intelligence Minister, Israel Katz, said the army action conveyed a clear message that "the era of the tunnel threat is nearing an end".

During the 2014 Gaza war, Hamas militants launched surprise attacks from tunnels that crossed under Israel's security fence and into Israel.
