Israel's army announced Sunday it destroyed an incomplete tunnel from Gaza that stretched into Israeli territory.

Military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said intelligence showed the tunnel belonged to Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip. 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", adding that it had communication systems, air vents, electricity and reinforced concrete structure.

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


The discovery was made several weeks ago with the help of advanced technology, the IDF statement said.

A Hamas attack tunnel that entered Israeli territory, which was destroyed by the IDF on December 10, 2017.

"We monitored this tunnel for a long period of time", he said.

"We see this as a severe violation of Israeli sovereignty", Conricus told journalists in a phone call on Sunday.


Islamist terrorist group Hamas had said Trump's move - which has been hailed by Israel but slammed across the Arab and Islamic world - had "opened the gates of hell". "And second because this is a Hamas terror tunnel".

The IDF demolished a Hamas-built terror tunnel on the Gaza border, the second such incident in weeks.

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