Second tunnel from Gaza found, destroyed: Israel Army

Israel`s military says it has found and destroyed a second tunnel dug from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip into Israel.



Jerusalem: Israel`s military says it has found and destroyed a second tunnel dug from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip into Israel.

The military says it blew up the tunnel today. It says the tunnel was packed with explosives and stretched dozens of metres into Israel.

Brig Gen Yoav Mordechai warned that the surrounding area is dangerous and "threats are still imminent".

On Sunday, the military announced the discovery of a long, concrete-lined tunnel from Gaza into Israel and alleged militants planned to use it to attack or kidnap Israelis.

Gaza`s Hamas rulers and their allies have dug tunnels into Israel before. It was through one such tunnel in 2006 that militants sneaked into Israel, killed two soldiers and kidnapped a third, Gilad Schalit, who was held hostage for five years.
