Israel destroyed Gaza tunnel

The army said that the tunnel, which ran for nearly a mile, extended 650 feet into Israeli territory, and was used to bring weapons into Israel for use by terrorists.

"The terrorist organization Hamas is responsible for everything happening in and out of the Gaza Strip", an IDF statement continued.

The tunnel, which was constructed in Gaza, began in the city of Rafah and crossed into Israel under the Kerem Shalom Crossing, through which hundreds of trucks ordinarily cross into the coastal enclave each day, he added.

Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus of the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said the discovery is the result of advanced cutting-edge technology used by the army to detect tunnels, as well as intelligence gathering and operational activities. The crossing has been closed until further notice. Although they did not manage to reach civilian areas, the infiltrations caught Israel off guard, killing five soldiers in one attack, and terrified the local population. According to the Israeli military, the tunnel was made by the Hamas, which is a terrorist group that has a major influence in the Palestine complex.

"There are people who say that the IDF attacks sand dunes - this isn't true. Hamas needs to understand that these attacks will continue".

But Trump left the door open when asked if the relationship was over permanently. "I don't believe there's any way back for Mr. Many factors, including the Central American economy and gang violence, play a role in migration patterns.


Hamas and Israel have fought three wars since 2008, and the last conflict in 2014 was waged in part over tunnels from Gaza that were used to launch attacks. We have responded to attacks against the State of Israel, which we've done with a highly systematic attack on infrastructure aimed against us. Unique about this tunnel, the IDF said, is that "it clearly was not a tunnel for smuggling merchandise, but specifically made for attacks".

Speaking from India, Netanyahu commented on the significance of the operation.

Since U.S. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital on December 6, more than 40 rockets and mortars were fired at Israel from Gaza, only half of which landed in Israeli territory. Israel attributes the rocket fire to Salafist groups in Gaza, and in one case has attributed fire to Islamic Jihad. "The message to Gaza's leadership is clear, invest in the sanctity of life and not in digging your own catacombs".

Kerem Shalom, the main passage point for goods entering Gaza, was shut down on Saturday, before the Israeli attack.
