JERUSALEM: Israel’s military said on Monday it has discovered a new infiltration tunnel, built by Hamas militants, stretching from the Gaza Strip several hundred metres (yards) inside Israeli territory.

“We have neutralised the tunnel in Israeli territory, rendering it unusable for infiltration by Hamas terrorists,” Lieutenant-Colonel Peter Lerner, a military spokesman, said in a conference call with foreign journalists.
