Hamas in 2021 claimed to have built a 500km tunnel under Gaza, although it is unclear if this number was accurate. Amid a land, sea and air blockade by Israel and a land blockade by Egypt since 2007, the tunnels are used to transport people and goods and house Hamas command centers.
IDF says it has uncovered more tunnels in the northern Gaza Strip, near a ferris wheel and a university.
The IDF says paratroopers operating in northern Gaza found a tunnel adjacent to an old amusement park.
