The Israel Defense Forces says it located and destroyed a Hamas tunnel adjacent to a UNRWA school in the northern Gaza Strip.

It says troops of the 551st Brigade and the elite Yahalom combat engineering found the tunnel entrance in the Beit Hanoun area, and later demolished it.

For years Israel has accused Hamas of using UNRWA school grounds for terror activity, including tunnels.
