IDF completes demolition of Gaza arms tunnel

The Israeli military completed the demolition of a Gaza terror tunnel discovered during its operation last summer in Gaza.

The tunnel stretched from Gaza City to the southern Israeli community of Nahal Oz. Israel has been in control of the tunnel since Operation Protective Edge.

On Feb. 9, the Israel Defense Forces said the tunnel was destroyed recently on Israeli territory near the Gaza border. The IDF said it discovered weapons and ammunition there.

The part of the tunnel that led into Gaza had been destroyed during the summer conflict, Ynet reported, citing the IDF.

Hamas reportedly is rebuilding terror tunnels leading from Gaza to Israel. — jta
