Israel destroys 'longest and deepest' Gaza tunnel

Israel destroys 'longest and deepest' Gaza tunnel”

Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman tweeted that the tunnel was "the longest and deepest exposed thus far", and chided Hamas for spending millions of dollars on building the terror tunnel from "money that would have been better served mitigating the plight of residents, but has now sunk into the sand".

The passage close Nahal Oz was noted to be connected to a network of tunnels from the Gaza Strip. Isreal's military said the tunnel was "kilometers" long, but the exact length and depth was not immediately clear. "We will get our hands on all of them".

After tubing diggers started working their way up to the surface Israel had been tracking construction of the tunnel network for ages however, chose to move in, a spokesman told The Times of Israel. "It's expanded into Israel and violated sovereignty". The tunnel crossed into Israeli territory by several metres (yards) but did not yet have an exit point, military spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists.

"The [Israeli Defense Forces] doesn't seek an escalation. We are protecting our boundaries", Conricus informed The Times of all Israel. "We will not tolerate or allow Hamas to turn the border area into an active combat zone".

"The route of the terror tunnel was identified by security forces early on and monitored thereafter", the Israel Army said on Twitter.

According to the United Nations, over 3,700 Palestinians have been wounded by Israeli forces during the Friday marches; 969 Palestinians on April 13, another 1,350 people on April 6 and 1,416 people on March 30.
