Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a spokesman for the Israeli military, said the tunnel extended hundreds of meters into Israeli territory and did not have an exit leading to the surface.

The tunnel, detected 10 days ago, is paved and equipped with electricity and a ventilation system.  A Hamas website quoted its senior leader as saying that the tunnel was used in fights in 2014.
