"But the tunnel has been destroyed".

Israel Defense Forces spokesman Jonathan Conricus said the tunnel originated in the city of Khan Younis, was more than half a mile long and stretched "hundreds of meters" into Israeli territory. Although not complete, he said the tunnel was "very substantial", equipped with electricity, communications equipment and a ventilation system.

On Monday night, the Israeli military said it hit Hamas positions after intercepting rockets coming from the blockaded enclave.

The immediate Israeli denial was somewhat of a rarity.

He declined to specify the exact location in Israeli territory and an exit point had not yet been created for the tunnel.

"We see this as a severe violation of Israeli sovereignty", Conricus told journalists in a phone call on Sunday. In response, the IDF struck Hamas targets in northern Gaza.

In response to the earlier rocket fire, the IDF attacked Hamas positions and clarified that it will hold the terrorist group accountable for every attack emanating from Gaza. The tunnel destroyed on Sunday had been discovered several weeks ago and was monitored by the military, Conricus said.

Hamas, the armed group that controls Gaza, declined to comment. Police find a rocket, fired from Gaza, inside a kindergarten in the southern Israeli town of Sderot on December 9, 2017.

Israel announced it was accelerating the creation of a new subterranean wall around Gaza in August. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking in Paris, described the new system as a "tremendous technological innovation".

"I advise any group who wants to threaten Israel to think twice", he said.

The circumstances of the incident, which occurred near Gaza's northern border with Israel, were initially unclear. After the first rocket was sacked, the army issued a statement saying that in response, "a tank and the Israel Air Force targeted Hamas military posts in the southern Gaza Strip".

A network of Gaza tunnels allowed Hamas gunmen to blindside Israel's superior forces during the 2014 war and the Israelis, with United States help, have since stepped up work on counter-measures.
