IDF general: Hamas tunnels breach Israeli security, are a death trap for terrorists

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 operation is not fail, and the message is pretty good. But, have you ever heard of MOP?
    This is also called Massive Ordnance Penetrator. And it is be dropped on the ENTRANCE, not on the exit of the tunnel. Let us hear of better tactics next time!

      Using MOP is like using a bat instead of a flyswatter.
      The best way to attack the tunnels is with fuel-air explosives. The resulting pressure wave is concentrated and passes down the air space, decimating everything in its path.

    Those that hate Israel don’t need a reason to, and will continue to hate Israel forever. Those who understand Israel will support Israel in defending itself at all costs. There is no need to play nice with jihadi lunatics. Empty the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Kick out all the Muslims from your lands and if they want to fight, let them die by the sword.

    Tell Hamas that for every tunnel discovered, the Erez crossing will be closed for three months.
