No searches in terror tunnel until Israel’s MIAs and captives returned

Israel Thursday nixed the Red Cross’ request for permission to search for the Palestinians trapped in the terror tunnel that the IDF blew up this week. Gen. Yoav Mordecai, Head of Operations in the Territories, categorically informed the Red Cross head in Israel, Jacques de Maio,  that Hamas and Jihad Islami would not be allowed to search the wrecked tunnel for their missing men, without real progress for the return of the bodies of Israeli soldiers missing in action and the two civilians held captive by Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

    Israel has every right to prevent a terror organization from searching for more terrorists on Israeli soil, while they still hold Israeli hostages.

    The IDF needs to go get those alive civilians and kill or arrest all those responsible.

    The mere thought of letting them onto Israeli territory is laughable. The Red Cross is a joke.
