Israel destroys "longest and deepest" Gaza tunnel

The tunnel had been under observation for some time, Israel said
The Israeli military has disabled a major tunnel dug by militants which reached Israel from the Gaza Strip.
Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman says it is the longest and deepest tunnel of its kind Israel has discovered.
A military spokesman said it was dug since the 2014 Gaza war, when Israel destroyed more than 30 tunnels which it said were meant for attacks.
Israel is using sophisticated measures to thwart tunnels dug by militants.
