IDF destroys tunnel extending from central Gaza into Israel

Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah discussed new financial opportunities.

"The tunnel was detonated from within Israel, close to the security fence". He gave no details.

In April 2016, Israel's military said it had located and destroyed a tunnel extending from the Gaza Strip into Israel in the first such discovery since the devastating 2014 conflict.

He could not confirm whether the tunnel belonged to Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip, but said Israel nevertheless holds the Islamist movement responsible for all such activity from the Palestinian enclave.

The army "neutralized a terror tunnel leading into southern Israel from the vicinity of Khan Younis", military spokesman Jonathan Conricus told reporters, referring to a city in the southern Gaza Strip.

Asked by reporters if Hamas, rather than another armed faction, had dug it, Conricus said: "I can not confirm that". "The working assumption is that this is not the only tunnel that Palestinian terrorist organisations are trying to dig". "We declare that our decision is a Palestinian, independent, national decision, and we will not go back to division", he added.

Hamas officials in Gaza had no immediate comment.

Hamas forces have used tunnels in the past to enter Israel and carry out attacks.

Sinwar's bellicose remarks were made in response to a statement by U.S. Special Mideast Envoy Jason Greenblatt- following the reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah, the ruling party of the Palestinian Authority-that Hamas must renounce terror and commit to peace negotiations with Israel if it wants to play a Palestinian government role.

The US has echoed the demand, saying any Palestinian government must "unambiguously and explicitly" adhere to certain "basic requirements", namely recognizing Israel.

The school was immediately closed and the tunnel sealed, according to the statement.

The agency, UNRWA, condemned the apparent violation of its sovereignty but did not specify who might have dug the tunnel.
