An “underground terror tunnel dug from Gaza into Israel” was discovered in the southern part of the Gaza strip, Israel Defense Forces announced on Monday.

“IDF troops just revealed an underground terror tunnel dug from Gaza into Israel,” The Israel Defense Forces tweeted on Monday. “How’d we find it? While building an underground security barrier. Why are we building an underground barrier? To stop Gaza terrorists from digging tunnels into Israel. Guess it’s working.”

The tunnel did not represent a threat and was “being taken care of by the IDF,” The Times of Israel reported, citing the Eshkol Regional Council, covering the area where the tunnel was found.

Israel is currently building an underground barrier in an attempt to both block terror tunnel digging and also detect it with special sensors. It was when digging this new barrier that they discovered the tunnel.

According to the military, work began on this barrier in 2016 and is due to be completed by the end of 2019. The 65-kilometer (40 mile) barrier is being constructed entirely inside Israeli territory, 50 meters (some 55 yards) from the Gaza border at its closest point and 300 meters (328 yards) away at its farthest.

The undergrown wall is made with special concrete that contains sensors. There are also metal sensor polls inserted at certain points which will detect Hamas’s tunnelling activity.

Hamas, which seeks to destroy Israel, seized control of Gaza from the Palestinian Authority in 2007, and is the de facto ruler of the territory.

Sadly, the people of Gaza have suffered under Hamas. Instead of helping building Gaza and providing for their people, Hamas has committed hundreds-of-millions of dollars to fund terrorism, building terror tunnels, making rockets, stockpiling weapons and brainwashing their people to hate Israel. Their aim to destroy Israel and the Jewish people.

It is Hamas and Hamas alone who is responsible for the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
