  • An Iron Dome defense system is deployed in central Israel

Israel's army announced Sunday it destroyed an incomplete tunnel from Gaza that stretched into Israeli territory.

Conricus described the tunnel as "very substantial", saying it contained communication systems, air vents, electricity and reinforced concrete structure. A network of Gaza tunnels allowed Hamas gunmen to blindside Israel's superior forces during the 2014 war and the Israelis, with U.S. help, have since stepped up work on counter-measures.

Military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said intelligence showed the tunnel belonged to Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip. The IDF is making clear this evening (Sunday) that it chose to destroy the tunnel without blowing it up in order to reduce any potential reactions from the terrorist organization.

"We see this as a severe violation of Israeli sovereignty", Conricus told journalists, while adding that Israel was not seeking an escalation. It now seems that there is a possibility to discover additional terror tunnels, which challenges Hamas from restraining itself.

Members of the Hamas terror group's military wing carry the body of their comrade Mohamed al-Safadi, who was killed the previous day in an Israeli air strike after rockets was sacked from Gaza into Israel, during his funeral in Gaza City on December 9, 2017. Once, because it is responsible for the Gaza Strip, and any act of violence that emanates from the Gaza Strip is under Hamas responsibility. "The IDF (Israel Defence Forces) will continue to discover, expose and demolish these terror tunnels", he said. Dozens of protestors in Gaza set fire to US flags and pictures of Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

During the 2014 Gaza war, Hamas militants launched surprise attacks from tunnels that crossed under Israel's security fence and into Israel.
