The IDF estimate that the length of the tunnel from Gaza if about 1.5 km (0.9 miles). At the conclusion of extensive examinations conducted in the tunnel, the possibility that it may contain explosives was negated, however many spaces were found, which are designed to store and detonate large quantities of explosives.
The tunnel contained rails to rapidly transport terrorist squads, as well as lighting. IDF Spokesman Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai told Ynet that "it is one of the most advanced terror tunnels to be uncovered in recent years." (Yoav Zitun)
