Israeli Jets Attack Gaza Strip

"We understand this tunnel belongs to Hamas", Conricus added, saying the military believed the terror group saw it as a "significant asset". Palestinian security sources in Gaza said nobody was hurt in the Israeli strike.

The IDF demolished a terror tunnel late Motzoei Shabbos, the army announced Sunday morning.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the tunnel was a "main Hamas infrastructure".

Speaking in Arabic to US-based satellite TV station Alhurra, Maj. Every day roughly 500 trucks, carrying goods from the West Bank and Israel, pass through it and into the coastal enclave, Israeli newspaper Haaretz said on its website.

Mordechai told Palestinian Authority Arabs, "Just as there is "Iron Dome" for the air, there's a technological dome of steel underground". Its military is operating under a directive from Lieutenant-General Gadi Eisenkot, its chief of staff, to detect and destroy all remaining tunnels by the end of the year.

Zamir expressed his appreciation to the Gaza Division, the Southern Brigade and all the other forces "involved for the precise operation" of tracking and destroying the tunnel.

The tunnel bombed on Saturday night is the fourth tunnel Israel has destroyed in recent months.

The army spokesperson denied earlier reports in Hebrew media that the jets had targeted a shipment of long-range missiles into Gaza.

He didn't specify which tools were used, but in the past Israel has said its new system involves combat units, military intelligence, logistics and research to destroy the tunnels.

Gaza is run by Islamist group Hamas, which has fought three wars with Israel and is designated a terrorist group by Western countries and Israel. It reached underneath the Kerem Shalom border crossing and below diesel and gas pipelines into Gaza, penetrating some 180 meters inside Israeli territory.
