Watch: IDF Releases Footage of Hamas Terror Tunnel Destruction

The Times of Israel reports: The Israeli military on Thursday evening released footage of its operation to destroy what it says was a Hamas attack tunnel that penetrated 200 meters into Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip.

Earlier in the day, the Israel Defense Forces announced that it had demolished the tunnel, which originated in the city of Khan Younis in southern Gaza. It was the 15th tunnel destroyed by Israel since October 2017, according to the IDF.

The footage showed Israeli combat engineers drilling into the tunnel from above and lowering a camera into it. According to the IDF, the tunnel was over one kilometer long, with multiple branches, electricity, and a communication system. The military estimated that it cost the Gaza-ruling Hamas some $3 million to construct the tunnel, including labor costs.
