The IDF destroyed a Hamas terror tunnel that went into Israel from the Gaza Strip. Thank G-d, the IDF destroyed it. These terror tunnels are a main part of the Hamas strategy to infiltrate into Israel, and then murder and kidnap innocent Israeli Jews.

Walking Through a Hamas Terror Tunnel

Hamas invests $3 million to build each tunnel. The Hamas intended to conduct a terror attack in Israeli territory using the tunnel.  But the IDF destroyed it after it caught on to the tunnel.  Yet, the world blames Israel for a humanitarian crisis in Gaza.  Why not criticize Hamas who wastes money in order to murder Israelis instead of helping its own people.

IDF Statement

The route of the tunnel was discovered as part of the ongoing technological, operational and intelligence efforts to locate and neutralize terror tunnels. These efforts began during Operation “Protective Edge” and have expanded over the last year.

Branched out over several locations, the tunnel was dug from numerous digging sites and combined different structural methods.

An engineering operation led by the Southern Command, the Intelligence Directorate and MAF’AT (the Administration for the Development of Weapons and Infrastructure) neutralized the tunnel within Israeli territory.

The IDF’s advanced technological capabilities are constantly improving and will continue identifying tunnels and neutralizing them while the construction of the underground barrier continues simultaneously.

Since October 2017, 15 tunnels have been neutralized in the Gaza Strip.
