Israeli forces detained at least 19 Palestinians during overnight raids between Saturday and Sunday from across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem al-Quds, according to a statement from the Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS).

The official twitter account for the IOF Spokesperson tweeted on Sunday that 'the attempt to renew the terror tunnel shows that Hamas finds it hard to accept the collapse of the tunnel project and continues to waste the funds desperately needed for the residents of the Gaza Strip. The tunnel destruction followed Israeli airstrikes against Hamas targets in Gaza in response to bombs planted along the border, in an attempt to harm Israeli soldiers.

No casualties were reported in either operation, which came after an explosive device was detonated near the Gaza border with Israel, the latest in a string of such incidents.

However, since the 2014 campaign, known in Israel as Operation Protective Edge, Hamas has been trying to reconnect what remained of the tunnel to a new passage being dug in southern Gaza, he said. Workers for the Hamas terror organization, that runs Gaza, were attempting to reopen the tunnel and make it usable, according to the Israeli military.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu similarily criticised Hamas in a statement reading, 'the time has come for the global community to recognize that the aid money for Gaza gets buried underground, ' he stated.

"On the basis of quality intelligence and groundbreaking technology, Israel is destroying Hamas tunnels one-by-one", Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a statement. Hamas claimed that the tunnel had been built for the goal of smuggling goods into Gaza.

Israel has placed a high priority on halting the tunnel threat since Hamas infiltrated Israel during the 2014 war.
