A Hamas operative has been providing Israel with detailed information about the militant group's tunnel network since his arrest last month, security services said Thursday, as another passage was discovered.Since then Israeli forces have uncovered two tunnels crossing the border, including one Thursday.The tunnel found Thursday is about 29 meters underground, the army said, and it is unclear whether it is a newly dug tunnel or an older tunnel Israel had hit and that had been repaired.Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an army spokesman, said Hamas militants may have fired toward soldiers because they realized Israel was closing in on its tunnel.Israel struck five other Hamas targets Wednesday, responding to a mortar shell launched toward Israeli forces near the Gaza Strip.
