JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's military said on Monday it has discovered a new infiltration tunnel, built by Hamas militants, stretching from the Gaza Strip several hundred meters (yards) inside Israeli territory.

"We have neutralized the tunnel in Israeli territory, rendering it unusable for infiltration by Hamas terrorists," Lieutenant-Colonel Peter Lerner, a military spokesman, said in a conference call with foreign journalists.
