Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned on Sunday that the country would respond harshly to any attack against it no matter where it comes from. Israel said the construction was a "terror tunnel", planned to carry out attacks, that run from Gaza into Israeli territory. "We will take a very strong hand against anyone who tries to attack us or attacks us from any sector".
The Hamas terror organization seized control of Gaza in a 2007 coup, taking over the coastal enclave from the Palestinian Authority.
There has been a war of words between Israel and the terrorist group, following Israel's destruction of the Islamic Jihad's terror tunnel in Gaza that extended across the border towards Kibbutz Kissufim, which killed a number of Islamic Jihad and Hamas terrorists.
The Israeli army's coordinator went on to say in his video: "Just to be clear, Israel will respond forcefully and resolutely to any Islamic Jihad reaction whatsoever - not just against Jihad, but also against Hamas".
