Before the five-hour humanitarian true between Israel and Gaza, there was a move made by Israelis: the bombing of tunnel in Israel.

Israeli forces bombed what they called the "terror tunnel," located under the Gaza border. The military bombed an opening of the tunnel, 250 yards inside Israel. The move reportedly prevented what could have been a "devastating" attack.
