IDF destroys Gaza terror tunnel being built by Hamas

The Defense Ministry's Coordinator of the Government's Activities in the Territories Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai

The military wing of the Hamas terror group on Sunday threatened to avenge the deaths of two of its fighters in retaliatory Israeli airstrikes.

The underground barrier is made from bentonite and is combined with large iron cages with a system of advanced sensor and monitoring devices to detect tunnels.

Jerusalmen - The Israeli military says it has destroyed a tunnel built by the Hamas militant group that stretched from the Gaza Strip several hundred meters into Israel. "It is by no means behind us, but this will surely force the terrorist organizations to change techniques and to adapt". The tunnel could have been used to abduct soldiers or carry out a devastating terror attack within an Israel community. While the tunnel was not yet complete, Conricus claimed Hamas was not far from establishing an exit point. Once, because it is responsible for the Gaza Strip, and any act of violence that emanates from the Gaza Strip is under Hamas responsibility. The army did not believe there were any casualties inside the tunnel after it had been demolished, he told journalists. Hamas did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Officials report this latest tunnel was dug in recent weeks and it was found in the area that does not have the new tunnel barrier in place yet.

The military has been investing extensive efforts in locating cross-border tunnels from Gaza and has been building a ground-breaking underground barrier across the entire border with the Hamas-run enclave.

Israel announced it was accelerating the creation of a new subterranean wall around Gaza in August.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said the tunnels were an unacceptable threat and that Israel would invest "every resource" to stop them. "The IDF will continue to discover and destroy the tunnels in order to defend and protect Israeli civilians and has no interest in escalating the situation".
