IDF Says It Exposed Massive Gazan “Terror Tunnel”


palestinian-tunnelThe Israeli military announced today that it had uncovered a tunnel from Gaza into Israel meant for carrying out a terror attack. IDF officials said the tunnel uncovered on Tuesday reached hundreds of meters inside Israel, “near civilian communities,” and went as deep as dozens of meters underground.

An IDF official said the tunnel was one of the largest yet discovered. “This advanced tunnel was intended to pose a direct link and threat to Israeli territory, and enable Hamas terrorists to reach and harm Israeli civilians,” IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said, adding that the tunnel could be used in a terror attack or a kidnapping attempt.
