The Israeli army destroyed a Hamas terror tunnel that stretched from Gaza into southern Israel.

It is the eighth terror tunnel running from Gaza into Israel to be discovered in the last several months, and the first to be discovered in northern Gaza.

Hamas, which rules Gaza, has called for a weekslong campaign of mass protests at the border aiming to highlight the Egyptian and Israeli blockade on the territory. The military made a decision to destroy the tunnel by sealing it up rather than bombing it.

The IDF plans to have sensors deployed all around the perimeter of Gaza by the end of next year.

Local media had reported on Sunday that the European Union had proposed for Hamas to bear the responsibility for the humanitarian and economic situation in the Gaza Strip if the PA and Israel agreed to funnel the taxes to the European Union fund and Hamas agrees to a five-year truce with Israel. According to the television report, just as Iron Dome is a lot more effective now than when it was first deployed, Israel's tunnel defense is much-improved since it was first instituted two years ago. The laboratory also works to improve existing technologies and strives to develop new discovery and mapping techniques that match the specific challenge of terrorist tunnels in different features.

The IDF has revealed its special laboratory for locating and neutralizing cross-border terror tunnels dug by Hamas. "It extended into Israel and violated Israeli sovereignty".

The tunnel crossed into Israeli territory by several yards but did not yet have an exit point, military spokesman Jonathan Conricus told journalists. The Hamas tunnel diggers were attempting to construct an exit to the tunnel when the IDF destroyed it.

Israeli Army also claimed that "violent riots that have been taking place in the area of the security fence are an attempt to mask the terror attacks meant to take place above and below ground".
