Israel Destroys Gaza Attack Tunnel that Also Went into Egypt

(Ha'aretz) Yaniv Kubovich - Israeli planes on Saturday night destroyed an attack tunnel along Israel's border with Gaza that also extended into Egyptian territory, the Israel Defense Forces said. The tunnel passed under the Kerem Shalom border crossing, the main entryway of humanitarian aid to Gaza, near the Egyptian border. The tunnel began in the Palestinian town of Rafah and reached 180 meters into Israeli territory. This is the fourth tunnel destroyed by Israel in recent months. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that digging the tunnel inside Israel "is a blatant violation of Israeli sovereignty."
