Israel says destroyed Gaza tunnel under Israel, Egypt borders

Such tunnels have been used to carry out attacks in the past.

Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said: "Destroying the network of offensive tunnels is an essential component in our policy of systematically damaging the strategic abilities of Hamas".

Palestinian security sources in Gaza said nobody was wounded in the Israeli strike.

The military said that it does not intend to bring about an escalation of the situation, but will continue to act against any violation of Israeli sovereignty.

The target struck was a tunnel that passed below the Kerem Shalom crossing.

The tunnel destroyed early Saturday morning is believed to have been a Hamas tunnel which stretched for nearly a kilometer running under the Kerem Shalom crossing near the gas pipeline and continued into Egyptian territory.

Official Palestinian media said that "infrastructure" was farmland in the southern Gaza Strip, prompting many to assume that it was, in fact, a tunnel beneath the field, though not necessarily one that crossed into Israeli territory.

United Nations trucks carrying building materials for projects funded by UNRWA arrive in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip after crossing the Israeli Kerem Shalom crossing on December 10, 2013.

The IDF said in a statement that it was possible the tunnel would have been extended into the direction of Sinai, allowing Gaza terrorists to send men and material to Sinai.

In its earlier statement, the army added, "The Hamas terror organization is accountable for all activity in and from the Gaza strip".

It is also building an underground wall in the area around the Gaza Strip to stop such tunnels.

He said he was not aware of any casualties from the destruction of the tunnel, which was still being built.

The army also denied the claim made by Hamas late Saturday night that the Israeli jets had targeted a smuggling tunnel between the Gaza Strip and Egypt, TOI reported.

Israel had shut down Kerem Shalom on December 14 following multiple rocket attacks from Gaza, along with Erez Crossing, through which people enter and exit the Strip.

It is the second time Kerem Shalom has been closed in under a month.
