The Coordinator of Activities in the Territories, Major-General Eitan Dangot, called for Israel to stop the transfer of construction materials into the Gaza Strip following the IDF's announcement of a recently uncovered tunnel leading from the enclave into Israel, Israel Radio reported.

Leaders from communities near the Gaza border called for the IDF to revoke a previous decision to pull soldiers out from deployments on frontline communities near the northern and southern borders. Haim Yalin, head of the Eshkol Regional Council said the discovery of the tunnel prevented disaster, according to the radio station.
