Ben Jamal, Director of Palestine Solidarity Campaign, said: "In recent weeks, the world has witnessed just how shamelessly Israel uses lethal force against Palestinian civilians". "It's expanded into Israel and violated sovereignty".

On the eve of the visit to Cairo, Mahmoud Zahar, a senior Hamas official in the Gaza Strip, said that his group was prepared to "study any advice given to it, and would accept any advice that serves Palestinian interests".

The military destroyed the tunnel by pumping materials into it that render it useless and do not allow for reconstruction, Haaretz reported.


"I have condemned Hamas' use of terrorist violence and will continue to do so".

Yitzhak Dreksler, an IDF soldier seriously injured during the 1973 Yom Kippur War, passed away on Saturday afternoon following. The marches have been organized by Gaza's militant Hamas rulers, but large turnouts on two preceding Fridays were also driven by Gaza's dire living conditions and desperation among the territory's 2 million residents, who have been enduring a crippling border closure by Israel and Egypt since 2007, according to the Associated Press. Hamas did not comment.

The army had been monitoring the tunnel system and made a decision to act when the tunnel crossed into Israeli territory, "tens of meters" from the southern Israeli community of Nahal Oz.


Conricus did not elaborate on the means of detection nor how the tunnel was filled. We will receive our hands on most these. According to the news report, Hamas, has switched to riots following the successful deployment of Iron Dome to negate the threat of rockets, and the laboratory, which has been thwarting Hamas's attempts to launch an underground raid against Israel.

A video release showed soldiers, with faces obscured, poring over maps and computer screens at an undisclosed location.

The protests are set to climax on May 15, when Israel will mark 70 years of independence - a day Palestinians mark as the "nakba" ("catastrophe" in Arabic) - and the United States will cut the ribbon on its controversial new embassy in Jerusalem.


Israel's military says this tunnel built by Hamas militants is the "longest and deepest" one they have found yet. The IDF says it is taking necessary action against people suspected of trying to damage the border fence or provide cover for Hamas attacks. Three of the tunnels were destroyed in Gazan territory and five in Israeli.
