"The IDF and security forces thwarted a serious disaster," said head of Yesh Atid, Yair Lapid, on Sunday.
"It is important to note that, this single tunnel had one goal: to murder innocent women and children in Israel," Lapid said.

Lapid said that world must back Israel in its fight against the tunnels, which he equated with "a land invasion of Israel."
