Col. Jonathan Conricus said the tunnel was of "significant length", and the detection, as well as the demolition, were enabled due to "significant developments.in a new system that the IDF now has". The two have fought several wars, the last one in 2014. The IDF will continue to discover and destroy the tunnels in order to defend and protect Israeli civilians and has no interest in escalating the situation.

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

Although there were no terrorists inside of the terror tunnel upon locating it, the IDF eliminated the tunnel without blowing it up. "It is by no means behind us, but this will surely force the terrorist organizations to change techniques and to adapt".

Hamas did not respond to a CNN request for comment on Israel's claim.

But the justices on Monday turned away the Georgia case, perhaps waiting for a similar challenge now pending before the U.S. Altitude Express , Inc., which is pending before the full U.S.

Conricus described the tunnel as "very substantial", adding that it had communication systems, air vents, electricity and reinforced concrete structure. It was located about a kilometer from an Israeli community.

Israel's military said it demolished a tunnel Sunday stretching from Gaza into its territory in an operation that comes at a time of increased tension over US President Donald Trump's recent Jerusalem declaration. His Intelligence Minister, Israel Katz, said the army action conveyed a clear message that "the era of the tunnel threat is nearing an end". The decision has infuriated the Palestinians, who seek Israel-annexed east Jerusalem as their own capital.

A network of Gaza tunnels allowed Hamas gunmen to blindside Israel's superior forces during the 2014 war and the Israelis, with USA help, have since stepped up work on counter-measures.
