Israel destroys tunnel from Gaza it says intended for attacks
Jerusalem, Jan 14, 2018 (AFP) - Israel said Sunday it used a combination of air strikes and other means to destroy a tunnel stretching from the Gaza Strip into the country and continuing into Egypt.
Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said the tunnel belonged to Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas and was intended for attacks as opposed to smuggling.
Such tunnels have been used to carry out attacks in the past.
