"The terrorist organization Hamas is responsible for everything happening in and out of the Gaza Strip", an IDF statement said. Israel shut down the crossing as a result until further notice.

Conricus, the military spokesman, noted that the tunnel's route stretched underneath the Kerem Shalom crossing, where 15 million tons of food, clothing, construction material and other essential goods had been transferred into Gaza since the 2014 war.

Recently, tensions have run high along the border, where Israel continues to build an anti-tunnel wall and where three offensive tunnels were recently unearthed, as well as a recent surge in rocket fire Haaretz said. Some 850 people were estimated Friday to oppose Israeli police in 17 locations in the West bank and another thousand in four locations along the Gaza Strip's border with Israel.

Asked if the tunnel could have functioned as both a smuggling and attack tunnel, the army spokesperson responded, "It could have, but we deal with the infrastructure".

The army stated that the tunnel had been identified and destroyed by a combination of advanced technology, intelligence and operational capability.

The IDF demolished a terror tunnel late Motzoei Shabbos, the army announced Sunday morning. "Let them not mess with us", he said. The message to the leadership and residents of Gaza is clear: "You should be investing in life-sustaining activities, not tunnels that end up as graves".

The IDF Spokesman's Office points out that in 2017, hundreds of trucks passed into Gaza via Kerem Shalom nearly daily, bringing a total of 570,000 tons of food, 7,044 tons of medical equipment, 10,000 tons of electrical equipment, 15,000 tons of textiles and equipment, 3.3 million tons of building materials and 12000 tons of farming/agriculture equipment.
