IDF Located, Neutralized New Terror Tunnel Crossing into Israel

IDF Located, Neutralized New Terror Tunnel Crossing into Israel”

It now seems that there is a possibility to discover additional terror tunnels, which challenges Hamas from restraining itself.

Israel Defense Forces spokesman Jonathan Conricus said the tunnel, which originated in the city of Khan Younis, had penetrated several hundred meters inside Israeli territory, finishing a kilometer away from the nearest village in Israel.

Conricus said that "to the best of our knowledge" there were no such casualties on Sunday, though he added that the tunnels could be "death traps" for Gaza gunmen.

Locating terror tunnels is part of an extensive effort of the IDF since the 2014 Gaza War, to locate underground infrastructure.

This is the second Gaza attack tunnel Israel has uncovered and destroyed in the past six weeks. His Intelligence Minister, Israel Katz, said the army action conveyed a clear message that "the era of the tunnel threat is nearing an end".

The operation to detect and demolish terror tunnels is an ongoing process, the IDF continued, pointing out that its capabilities to carry out this mission are constantly improving.

The Israeli military has destroyed this weekened an attack tunnel reaching from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory. The IDF "is prepared for all developments".

The Salafi Islamic terror group Tawhid al-Jihad, which has in the past sought to overthrow Hamas's rule in Gaza, later claimed responsibility for the rocket launches.

This is the second terror tunnel the IDF has exposed and destroyed in a month's time.
