Before being withdrawn from the Gaza Strip, the IDF says troops of the Commando Brigade located a 900-meter-long tunnel in the al-Amal neighborhood of Khan Younis.

In the tunnel, the IDF says troops found rooms where operatives would reside, along with a large cache of weapons.

The tunnel was later demolished by combat engineers, the IDF says. Next to one of the tunnel entrances, a gunman was killed, the IDF adds.
