The Israeli military announced Friday it has uncovered another tunnel -- the biggest so far -- dug from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, stretching into Israel and intended for militant attacks or abducting soldiers and civilians.Israel has found several such tunnels in recent years but this was the biggest found to date, Lerner said.The tunnel into Israel was found this week by Israeli intelligence and the military, Lerner said, saying the structure was lined with concrete and describing it as very sophisticated, resembling a subway tunnel.Attacks have declined since an eight-day Israeli offensive in 2012 against Gaza militants aimed at stopping what was almost daily fire at the time.Last week, Gaza militants fired the heaviest rocket barrage at Israeli communities since 2012, and Israel responded with air strikes on militant targets.
