In locating and destroying Hamas tunnels in the area Beit Hanoun, the Israeli army advanced in the Gaza Strip, which is intensifying the major operation to exterminate the Palestinian organization after the massacre of October 7.

THE The IDF announced that a sufficient number of its tunnels had been located and destroyed Hamas in the area.

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.
