An incomplete tunnel running for more than a kilometer from Gaza into southern Israel has been destroyed, Israel's army announced on Sunday.

The IDF said the passage began in the Gazan city of Khan Younis and extended "hundreds of meters" inside Israeli territory.

Israeli troops stationed on the borders between southeast Gaza Strip and Israel shot and wounded six Palestinians on Thursday, medical sources said.

Conricus described the tunnel as "very substantial", adding that it had communication systems, air vents, electricity and reinforced concrete structure.

Stefanik votes for reciprocal concealed carry measure
Both parties saw defections with 14 Republicans- including the head of the Congressional Second Amendment Caucus, U.S. Democrats also criticized Republicans for including a bill on background checks in the concealed-carry legislation.

The discovery was made several weeks ago with the help of advanced technology, the IDF statement said.

Islamist terrorist group Hamas had said Trump's move - which has been hailed by Israel but slammed across the Arab and Islamic world - had "opened the gates of hell". A network of Gaza tunnels allowed Hamas gunmen to blindside Israel's superior forces during the 2014 war and the Israelis, with USA help, have since stepped up work on counter-measures. The tunnel could have been used to abduct soldiers or carry out a devastating terror attack within an Israel community. Once, because it is responsible for the Gaza Strip, and any act of violence that emanates from the Gaza Strip is under Hamas responsibility. It now seems that there is a possibility to discover additional terror tunnels, which challenges Hamas from restraining itself.

"We monitored this tunnel for a long period of time", he said.

It was the second such operation in recent weeks, with the last tunnel destroyed on October 30.
