Army finds 'new Hamas tunnel' reaching into Israel from Gaza

Jerusalem (AFP) - Israeli forces uncovered a Hamas tunnel stretching across the border from Gaza on Thursday, the army said, the second such discovery in recent weeks.

"About four hours ago the IDF exposed a second tunnel in the southern Gaza Strip," army spokesman Peter Lerner said.

He said the tunnel was around 30 metres (100 feet) underground and stretched from the Palestinian enclave into Israeli territory, though he did not say how far.
