IDF uncovers and destroys another Palestinian terror tunnel

Another Palestinian terror tunnel was discovered by Israeli forces and blown up Sunday Dec. 10. It ran from Khan Younes in the southern Gaza Strip, penetrating several hundred meters inside Israel from the Gazan border, DEBKAfile’s military sources report. The tunnel had its exit in the middle of Israeli farmland just one kilometer from Kibbutzim Nirim and Ein Hashlosha. IDF watchers had kept track of the tunnel’s constriction for some months. This is why the IDF declared several parts of the border region off-limits and boosted the military presence there. On Sunday, in the wake of the Hamas rocket attack on Israeli civilian locations Friday night, the decision was taken to neutralize it. The technical means of destruction ran deep inside the tunnel under Palestinian territory. The soldiers ascertained that it was empty of Hamas builders. They found it to be fully equipped for terrorist operations, with walls of reinforced concrete and communications gear.
The OC of the IDF’s southern command Maj. Gen. Eyal Zamir warned Hamas Sunday that by violating Israeli security and escalating violent tension, it is putting its own Gaza citizens in harm’s way. The tunnels Palestinian terror groups are digging from Gaza are a violation of Israel territory, he said, and will be death traps for those who build them. “We possess a broad range of overt and covert capabilities” for foiling these subterranean threats against our country, he said. The Southern Command is ready, every tunnel will be destroyed and we shall not hesitate to do what is necessary to protect our citizens and the people living next door to the Gaza Strip.”

The Palestinian terrorist tunnel destroyed as it ran into Israel was the second in recent weeks. The first, belonging to the Jihadi Islami was blown up on Oct. 30, before it could be used, leaving 19 Jihad and Hamas activists dead.

    I see, so the IDF make sure that the terrorists who build these terror tunnels are not in them when they are destroyed. The terrorists are fortunate that I am not making that decision.

      I am very sorry for this decision ! But I do not want to put them in the grave in the territory of Israel

    These are very hard and humiliating times for Israel. Let us hit them by surprise with the hammer of peace, because any arrangement is already a complete victory for the heroic Palestinian people.
    Allah willing, they might accept, and 2018 will remain in the history as the PLO Year Of The Great Sages!

      Abbas Mahmud you need some anti hallucinogenic medication. Take the tunnel money and feed your people or pay your electric bill. Better yet buy some Israeli Solar technology instead of guns and rockets. That way you can provide power for FREE. Here you are attacking the People that sustain you while your leaders squander donations on Villas and fancy cars while yuour all starving. But that’s perfectly okay because it’s the Jews fault. Dust yourselves off and get your SHIT together. Prove you can manage a State and Country of your own. Then things will change. The Holocaust survivors that had nothing your cowardly Arab armies attacked beat you down like you deserved. Why shouldn’t your people take the $$$ and stay in the Countries they fled to.

    Although the following quote refers to the time of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, you’ve got to appreciate the prescient power of the word of God regarding such things as men hiding and moving as worms in tunnels. Micah prophesied in 750 B.C.
    Micah 7:17
    They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee.

    I have been observing the Arab Israeli conflict since the 1968 6 day war. The Arabs because of their nature will never allow Israel to achieve a lasting peace; unless the world has a total epiphany like Saul on the road to Damascus and stops supporting a nonexistent country with a non existent people called Palestinians. Then and only then will the Arabs come to the table with realistic expectations and demands that Israel can live with.

    “Let us hit them by surprise with the hammer of peace’ I didnt know there was such a thing as a hammer of peace. For you to suggest surprising people and hitting them with it only shows your cowardly, brutal, underhand, backstabbing mentality.
