The Israeli army announced Saturday that they destroyed a tunnel which ran under the border between Gaza and Israel, reaching all the way to the Egyptian side of the crossing.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, it was dug from Rafah, at a length of one mile. At around 11 p.m. Saturday night, Israeli war planes targeted the tunnel on the Gazan side in Rafah, about one yard from the border with Israel, according to Fox News.

The tunnel — which is under strategic gas and fuel pipelines — penetrated 600 feet into Israeli territory, passing underneath Kerem Shalom checkpoint, the only commercial crossing between Gaza and Israel, which serves as Gaza’s main point of humanitarian aid. Israel shut down the crossing as a result until further notice.

Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said, “We have not encountered a tunnel like that before,” noting that in addition to the airstrikes, other unspecified means were used to destroy the tunnel portions in Israeli territory. He added that Israel had coordinated with Egypt on the operation.

The incident marks the third time the IDF has uncovered and destroyed Hamas tunnels in the last two months.

 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he is committed to respond to the Hamas terrorist organization.
“Necessary coordination” was made with Egyptian authorities, Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said.
The Israeli military at first described the target as a “terror infrastructure” site, in a statement shortly after the strike, clarifying that it was a tunnel in a conference call with reporters Sunday.
Israel blamed Hamas for building the tunnel and says it holds the Islamist group responsible for all actions emanating from Gaza.
