In video - Israel destroys cross-border Hamas tunnel

Oct. 11, 2018 3:50 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 12, 2018 12:07 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israel reportedly destroyed a Hamas movement tunnel that went 200 meters inside Israel from the central besieged Gaza Strip.

Israeli news outlets reported that the tunnel is new, goes into various areas and was being worked on from different areas of the Gaza Strip.

Israeli news website, Ynet, reported that since October 2017, the Israeli army has destroyed 15 Hamas tunnels, including this one.

The mentioned tunnel was reportedly located several months ago; an Israeli army spokesperson said that "The decision on the timing of the work (destroying the tunnel) has to do with operational considerations, as well as the fact that the tunnel connects to a network of fighting tunnels inside the strip."

The spokesperson added that Israel now has new technologies for locating and thwarting "tunnel activities," adding that the army is now in control of several tunnels that the Hamas movement allegedly planned to use "for attacks inside Israel."

The video belows shows the location of the tunnel:
