IDF Located, Neutralized New Terror Tunnel Crossing into Israel

  • Israel demolishes tunnel 'belonging to Hamas' from Gaza into its territory

An Israeli military jeep drives near the area where the Israeli forces said a "significant" cross-border attack tunnel from the Gaza Strip, which was being dug by the enclave's dominant Islamist group, Hamas, was destroyed, near Israel's border with the Gaza Strip December 10, 2017.

The IDF used explosives to destroy another tunnel from Gaza on October 30, killing at least seven Palestinians.

The IDF announced on Sunday, 22 Kislev, another Hamas tunnel originating in Gaza and stretching into southern Israel has been discovered and destroyed.

Military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said intelligence showed the tunnel belonged to Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip.

Israel has made neutralizing the tunnel threat a top priority since that war, when Hamas militants on several occasions made their way into Israel.


This was the second tunnel destroyed using a new system to detect, expose and destroy tunnels in the past six weeks. It now seems that there is a possibility to discover additional terror tunnels, which challenges Hamas from restraining itself. It was located about a kilometer from an Israeli community.

The army said the timing of the weekend operation was not connected to a flare-up of deadly violence that followed President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The IDF Spokesperson noted that digging the tunnel is a flagrant violation of Israeli sovereignty, an unacceptable situation which was behind the IDF move to neutralize.

"Our battle for Jerusalem is going on round the clock, above and under the ground", the statement said.
