IDF Demolishes Another Hamas Terror Tunnel

Palestinian fisherman killed by Egyptian naval forces

The tunnel stretched a total length of around a kilometre and a half, he said. The tunnel was destroyed by ground forces overnight, after an initial air attack demolished part of it inside Gaza.

The strikes occurred within the Gaza Strip, while further means were used in Israeli territory.

Once a rare move, it will be the second time Kerem Shalom is punitively closed in under a month, as Israel seeks to force the ruling Hamas terrorist group to return quiet to the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army did not elaborate on reasons and the exact target of the airstrike.

The tunnel destroyed early Saturday morning is believed to have been a Hamas tunnel which stretched for nearly a kilometer running under the Kerem Shalom crossing near the gas pipeline and continued into Egyptian territory.

Last week, the IDF struck what many assumed to be a tunnel in the Gaza Strip, following a series of mortar attacks.

Palestinian sources say that a tunnel was the target of the attack and none reported hurt in the attack according local sources in Gaza.

"The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible for everything happening in and out of the Gaza Strip", the press release added.

Fishermen from Gaza have often brought in catch from Egyptian territory to sidestep restrictions imposed by Israel's naval blockade of the enclave, which Israel maintains citing security concerns. 'Hamas must understand that we will not allow these attacks to continue and that we will respond with even greater force, ' he told reporters before boarding a flight to India.

Media asked if the tunnel could have functioned as both a smuggling and attack tunnel, the army spokesperson responded, "It could have, but we deal with the infrastructure".

He said he was not aware of any casualties from the destruction of the tunnel, which was still being built. Earlier Motzoei Shabbos, the IDF closed the Kerem Shalom crossing, and it is to remain closed throughout Sunday. Erez reopened a day later, and Kerem Shalom was reopened on December 17.

According to the IDF, rioters in four different locations along the Israel-Gaza border burnt tires and hurled rocks at Israeli security forces.
