The system was first used to detect a tunnel that was destroyed on October 30, but other aspects of the system were used this time around, he said.
"The tunnel that was thwarted today was a very significant tunnel and [built] to higher standards than what we are used to seeing", said IDF Spokesman Brig. The tunnel destroyed on Sunday had been discovered several weeks ago and was monitored by the military, Conricus said. The tunnel has since been under IDF monitoring until its destruction on Sunday.
Although there were no terrorists inside of the terror tunnel upon locating it, the IDF eliminated the tunnel without blowing it up.

Explosives were not used to destroy the latest tunnel and no deaths were reported.
"The Israeli Defense Forces have discovered and destroyed another terrorist tunnel today, coming from the area of Khan Yunis in the central part of the Gaza Strip a few hundred meters into Israeli territory", Israel's Army spokesperson Jonathan Conricus told reporters. A network of Gaza tunnels allowed Hamas gunmen to blindside Israel's superior forces during the 2014 war and the Israelis, with United States help, have since stepped up work on counter-measures.
