Israel finds Palestinian ‘terror tunnel’ from Gaza Strip
Sunday 13 October 2013
Israel has put on show what it calls a Palestinian “terror tunnel” running into its territory from the Gaza Strip and said it was freezing the transfer of building material to the enclave.
“The discovery of the tunnel… prevented attempts to harm Israeli civilians who live close to the border and military forces in the area,” the Israeli Defence Minister, Moshe Yaalon, said yesterday, accusing Gaza’s ruling Hamas Islamist movement of being behind construction of the one-mile tunnel.
There was no claim of responsibility in Gaza but a spokesman for Hamas’s armed wing wrote on Twitter that “the determination deep in the hearts and minds of resistance fighters is more important than tunnels dug in the mud”.
Hamas, along with other militant groups, tunnelled into Israel in 2006 and seized an Israeli soldier.
