IDF combat engineers demolished two attack tunnels belonging to the Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror groups in northern Gaza’s Beit Hanoun in recent weeks, the military says.

The IDF says the two tunnels were under “continuous intelligence and technological surveillance” since their discovery and until they were demolished.

The underground passages did not cross into Israeli territory, according to the IDF.
