Even After War, Hamas Has Tunnels Running into Israel

6

hamas-tunnel-palestinianEven as the IDF Southern Command said that “southern residents can return to their homes and feel safe,” some sources believe that Hamas still retains two to three tunnels into Israel.

A senior IDF officer said: “We are tracking Hamas which is under great duress from within and without….We have hit the decisive majority of the tunnels in Hamas’ hands. Hamas invested tens of millions into this tunnel system and was preparing other significant measures, which all went to waste.” He stressed that “the operation led to a severe hit on (Hamas’) infrastructure and capabilities.”

Southern Command head Maj. Gen. Sami Turgeman said: “We found whole homes and streets booby-trapped, we encountered anti-tank missiles, mortar fire, sniper fire, and close-quarters combat….In every place where we operated, our forces [were able to] successfully subdue the enemy and to defeat him, to cope with his capabilities and neutralize them. Our forces won in every area, achieved their objectives with great success.”

  1. “OUR FORCES WON IN EVERY AREA”…. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE AS HAMAS IS STILL SHOOTING CONSTANT ROCKETS!!!! THIS ASPECT OF WAR IS STILL LEFT OVER TO BE DEFEATED!!!!!!!

  2. I’m confused — Who are the real Palestinians?

    ISRAELI LEADERS:

    BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, Born 21 October 1949 in Tel Aviv, Israel (formerly Mandate of Palestine)

    EHUD BARAK, Born 12 February 1942 in Mishmar HaSharon , British Mandate of Palestine

    ARIEL SHARON, Born 26 February 1928 in Kfar Malal , British Mandate of Palestine

    EHUD OLMERT, Born 30 September 1945 in Binyamina-Giv ‘ at Ada , British Mandate of Palestine .

    ITZHAK RABIN, Born 1 March 1922 in Jerusalem , British Mandate of Palestine .

    ITZHAK NAVON, Israeli President in 1977-1982. Born 9 April 1921 in Jerusalem, British Mandate of Palestine.

    EZER WEIZMAN, Israeli President in 1993-2000. Born 15 June 1924 in Tel Aviv, British Mandate of Palestine .

    ARAB “PALESTINIAN” LEADERS :

    YASSER ARAFAT, Born 24 August 1929 in Cairo, Egypt

    SAEB EREKAT, Born April 28, 1955, in Jordan. He has the Jordanian citizenship .

    FAISAL ABDEL QADER AL-HUSSEINI, Born in1948 in Bagdad, Iraq .

    SARI NUSSEIBEH, Born in 1949 in Damascus, Syria .

    MAHMOUD AL-ZAHAR, Born in 1945, in Cairo, Egypt .

    So, Israeli leaders, who were born in Palestine, are called “Settlers” or “Occupiers.” While Palestinian Arab leaders who were born in Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq and Tunisia are called “Native Palestinians”???!!!

  3. Your forces were the extension of Yad haShem. Physically there is no way you could have won! Hashem chose to fight the battle for His kinderlech.
    My question to you, Gen Turgeman, what’s with the remaining tunnels?

  4. #2 – you’re not confused – the world is confused. If Israel had a little bit better hasbara this would be more widely known. Our soldiers on the battlefront need support on the communications front, too.
