JNS.org The Israel Defense Forces blew up an explosives-laden tunnel under Israel’s border with the central part of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, outgoing IDF Spokesman Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai said.

The tunnel was a previously undiscovered segment of a tunnel that was uncovered before Operation Pillar of Defense last November. It contained barrels of explosives intended for use by Gaza-based terrorists against IDF troops patrolling the border.

Last week, the IDF uncovered a different tunnel, running 1.5 miles under the border from the Gaza Strip until Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha. Gaza terrorists intended to use that tunnel to abduct soldiers or to carry out a large terrorist attack.
