The tunnel was destroyed by ground forces overnight, after an initial air attack demolished part of it inside Gaza.

It has recently boasted of secret technology allowing it to locate and destroy them.

This tunnel extended to Egypt, that is to say it went from southern Israel through Gaza to Rafiach, a length of about 1.5 kilometers (.932 miles).

"Contrary to the claim that it was a smuggling tunnel it is a terror tunnel", Conricus said.

Israel destroyed a mile-long tunnel that stretched from Gaza under Israel and into Egypt on Saturday night.

The tunnel destroyed early Saturday morning is believed to have been a Hamas tunnel which stretched for nearly a kilometer running under the Kerem Shalom crossing near the gas pipeline and continued into Egyptian territory. In a statement, the Palestinian Interior Ministry said the fisherman had been shot by Egyptian army forces.

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot made the destruction of Palestinian terror groups' attack tunnel a top priority for the military, following the 2014 Gaza war, which saw extensive use of tunnels by the Hamas terrorist group. Most tunnels that run from Gaza to Egypt are used to smuggle goods into the economically starved territory. The tunnel was bombed on Sunday morning to make certain it was totally destroyed. It was completely destroyed by the strike.

The army spokesperson denied earlier reports in Hebrew media that the jets had targeted a shipment of long-range missiles into Gaza.

Conricus said Israel is "looking into the reasons" for its unusual construction.

Israel withdrew troops and settlers from the territory in 2005 but remains the conduit for the passage of goods and supplies most of its electricity.
