Furthermore, the mere fact that there were no Hamas or Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists inside the tunnel during the IDF operation is what also aided in reducing responses from the terrorist organizations.

Israeli soldiers' gunfire wounded six Palestinian men east of Khan Younis in southern Gaza Strip, adding one was shot in abdomen and is in critical condition, Ashraf al-Qedra, spokesman of Gaza's Health Ministry told reporters. The system was first used to detect a tunnel that was destroyed on October 30, but other aspects of the system were used this time around, he said.
Israel was not aware of any casualties, he said.
The Israel Defense Forces discovered and demolished a terror tunnel that crossed into Israel from central Gaza. Although not complete, he said the tunnel was "very substantial", equipped with electricity, communications equipment and a ventilation system.

Arsenal have all but given up on the title 15 games in and sit 15 points and in fifth position, after a 3-1 defeat to United. His record of four goals this season despite zero starts in the Premier League means he's scored a goal every 63 minutes.
Although there were no terrorists inside of the terror tunnel upon locating it, the IDF eliminated the tunnel without blowing it up.
Officials report this latest tunnel was dug in recent weeks and it was found in the area that does not have the new tunnel barrier in place yet. "I hope that in the coming months the threat of tunnels on the residents surrounding Gaza will become a thing of the past", he said.
