  • Israel says it destroys Hamas tunnel network in Gaza

Signed in October a year ago the reconciliation deal between West Bank-based Fatah and Gaza-based Islamist Hamas was aimed at ending a decade-long split between rival Palestinian factions and an attempt to unify policy across the two territories, now operating as two parallel governments.

Zahar and other Hamas leaders denied a report claiming the group had received an offer that would see a European committee manage the humanitarian and social affairs in Gaza if Abbas levies additional sanctions on the Hamas-run enclave.

After tubing diggers started working their way up to the surface Israel had been tracking construction of the tunnel network for ages however, chose to move in, a spokesman told The Times of Israel.

Israel's military says this tunnel built by Hamas militants is the "longest and deepest" one they have found yet. "It extended into Israel and violated Israeli sovereignty". The opening of the tunnel on the Israel side stretched to Nahal Oz, a community in southern Israel.

The army had been monitoring the tunnel system and made a decision to act when the tunnel crossed into Israeli territory, "tens of meters" from the southern Israeli community of Nahal Oz.

"The [Israeli Defense Forces] doesn't even hunt an escalation".

The Hamas delegation - headed by Saleh Arouri and Musa Abu Marzouk - is set to arrive in Cairo today, according to the Times of Israel whilst Fatah factions are said to be already there. "We are defending our borders", Conricus told The Times of Israel. "We allow or will not endure Hamas to turn the edge area". The laboratory, which has been operating under the military's Gaza Division for the past two years, uses advanced technology to discover the attack tunnels.

At least 35 Palestinians have been martyred and more than 3,000 wounded by Israeli army gunfire since the most recent round of demonstrations began on March 30.

It is the fifth such detection in as many months and Israeli officials regard publicity around their tunnel hunts as a double-edged sword. The marches have been organized by Gaza's militant Hamas rulers, but large turnouts on two preceding Fridays were also driven by Gaza's dire living conditions and desperation among the territory's 2 million residents, who have been enduring a crippling border closure by Israel and Egypt since 2007, according to the Associated Press.
