IDF destroys Hamas terror tunnel, second time in recent weeks

Posted December 11, 2017

An incomplete tunnel running for more than a kilometer from Gaza into southern Israel has been destroyed, Israel's army announced on Sunday.

The Israel Police stated Sunday that a rocket fired from Gaza last Friday struck a kindergarten in the southern Israeli city of Sderot.

He added intelligence indicated the tunnel belonged to Hamas, the militant organization that controls Gaza, but no Israeli military personnel or civilians were considered at risk and there was no exit point at the time it was destroyed. Meanwhile, Hamas's "restraint" forces are preventing rocket-launchers from reaching the Israeli border area, as attempted launches towards Israel have landed in Gaza.

Conricus described the tunnel as "very substantial", saying it contained communication systems, air vents, electricity and reinforced concrete structure.

Furthermore, the mere fact that there were no Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists inside the tunnel during the IDF operation is what also aided in reducing responses from the terrorist organizations.

It is the second terror tunnel neutralized in recent weeks.
