Hamas tunnel destroyed by Israeli airstrikes

(MENAFN) In order to destroy a tunnel extending from the Gaza Strip into Israel and continuing into Egypt, Israel said it used a combination of air strikes and other means.

The tunnel belonged to Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas and was intended for attacks as opposed to smuggling, according to Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus.

Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said: "Destroying the network of offensive tunnels is an essential component in our policy of systematically damaging the strategic abilities of Hamas."
