Ynetnews reports: The IDF has found another Hamas attack tunnel inside the Gaza Strip that is burrowing towards Israel, it was cleared for publication on Thursday.

The new tunnel is 28 meters deep and it was found not far from the tunnel found last month, the first to be found since Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014.

While IDF forces found the tunnel itself, they have yet to find any exit shafts inside Israeli territory. The Engineering Corps troops are now working to discover the tunnel’s entire path, including any possible exit shafts inside Israel, and then destroy it.

IDF engineering forces have been operating over the past few weeks in several locations along the Gaza border in search for additional border-crossing tunnels.
