IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari says troops operating in the Khan Younis area of southern Gaza located a tunnel where hostages had been held by Hamas.

“We are continuing to operate with determination, above and below ground in Khan Younis. The forces found a tunnel there, where hostages resided in difficult conditions under the ground,” Hagari says.

He does not provide any further information on the tunnel.
