In a statement, President Reuven Rivlin sent "a hug of comfort and strength to the families of the dead and prayers for a speedy recovery to the wounded". "You hear about accidents like these every day in the news".

Palestinian militant groups in the Middle East praised the attack.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group said it "commends" the attack and "calls for further attacks against the Zionist occupation", the Times of Israel reported on Friday.

"Whoever thought they could attack us from underground has come up against an iron wall", he said, referring to an Israeli wall being built underneath the border to thwart tunnel-building.

To enter Jerusalem, Palestinians must apply for Israeli-issued permits.

The spokesperson added that the army used a new technique to destroy the tunnel that would prevent Hamas from being able to use it again, but would not elaborate on its nature.
