Prisoner's Day: Thousands of Palestinians in Israeli jails

Hamas politburo chief Ismail Hanieh

The Israeli military said it was unaware of any activity in the area of the blast.

For the fourth time in recent days, a kite rigged with a Molotov cocktail was flown by Palestinian terrorists from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip into southern Israel on Tuesday, the Hebrew news outlet Mako reported. Although they did not manage to reach civilian areas, the infiltrations caught Israel off guard, with one attack killing five soldiers, and terrified the local population.

At least 35 Palestinians have been martyred and more than 3,000 wounded by Israeli army gunfire since the most recent round of demonstrations began on March 30.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said this was the longest and deepest tunnel Israel has discovered thus far.

Israel has faced criticism over its use of live fire along the Gaza border since March 30, while the European Union and United Nations chief Antonio Guterres have called for an independent investigation.

"It's a tunnel that cost millions of dollars to dig, money that instead of going to ease the hardship of Gaza's residents has sunk in the sand", he said.

Hamas had no immediate comment. Israel has since been developing detection technologies and laying down an underground frontier wall which, it says, will end the Gaza tunnel threat by 2019.

Israel has fought three wars with the Islamist movement Hamas since 2008, and the group has used tunnels to carry out attacks in the past. Israel destroyed it over the course of the weekend.
