Hamas on Monday responded shortly after the IDF announced that it recently uncovered a Hamas infiltration tunnel reaching from Gaza into Israeli territory for the first time since Operation Protective Edge, claiming that the underground passageway was a remnant from one used during the 2014 war.

A Hamas security source claimed that "the tunnel that the Zionist army announced it discovered was an old tunnel used during the last war."
