The IAF bombed a terror tunnel that was being dug underground from the northern Gaza Strip into Israel by Hamas, the IDF announced Monday evening.

According to the military which was operating with the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), a number of Hamas operatives were reported to be in the tunnel during the bombing.

The status of their condition was unclear.

Earlier Monday, The Jerusalem Post reported that concern is growing within the IDF regarding increased efforts by Palestinian terrorist groups to dig tunnels under the border that could be used to infiltrate into Israel and perpetrate attacks.

According to IDF sources, the number of tunnels has grown in recent years. Hamas is under orders to dig terror tunnels along the border.
