Following Destruction of Hamas Terror Tunnel, Israel Reveals Secret of Underground Defense

Following Destruction of Hamas Terror Tunnel, Israel Reveals Secret of Underground Defense

Hamas, which rules Gaza, has called for a weekslong campaign of mass protests at the border aiming to highlight the Egyptian and Israeli blockade on the territory.

The military destroyed the tunnel by pumping materials into it that render it useless and do not allow for reconstruction, Haaretz reported. It was also connected to a network of tunnels under Gaza, according to the IDF.

Ryvka Barnard, Senior Campaigner on Militarism and Security at War on Want, said: "HSBC holds millions of pounds worth of shares in companies like BAE Systems, Boeing, and Elbit Systems, whose weapons are used in Israeli military attacks on Palestinian civilians". Israel has since been developing detection technologies and laying down an underground frontier wall which, it says, will end the Gaza tunnel threat by 2019.

Israel had been monitoring construction of the tunnel network for years but chose to move in after tunnel diggers began working their way up to the surface, a military spokesman told The Times of Israel.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hailed the decline in rioters as a victory for Israel. "I believe we will not get anything [from Abbas]". "It extended into Israel and violated Israeli sovereignty".

"The [Israeli Defense Forces] doesn't seek an escalation".


During the talks, according to the unconfirmed report, Egypt also intends to exert pressure on Hamas to halt the recent string of "March of Return" Gaza border protests. "We are protecting our boundaries", Conricus informed The Times of all Israel.

The Times of Israel is reporting that a 28-year-old Palestinian man was killed by Israeli gunfire, and over 122 others were injured, per Hamas' Gaza Health Ministry.

As per the deal, Hamas was supposed to handover power in the Gaza Strip to the Palestinian Authority (PA) by December but, apart from the relinquishing of border control, the due date was missed and the Islamic militant group remains firmly in control of the coastal enclave.

The laboratory has accomplished proven achievements in locating and thwarting five terrorist tunnels in recent months by combining the capabilities of the engineering, intelligence and the technological front, noted the IDF.

The tunnel, which was constructed by Hamas after the Gaza War in 2014, was "ready for use", the IDF spokesman said.
