Time for Hamas to Make Peace, Not Tunnels

Today, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported the discovery of another “tunnel built by Gaza terrorists near Israeli civilian communities. The tunnel’s opening is hundreds of meters inside Israel and it varies in depth. The investigation of the tunnel is ongoing.”

IDF Spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner provided this assessment:

”Our operational assumption is that Hamas and other terror organizations continue to tunnel and prepare points of attack against Israel and its civilians. 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. Tunnels such as this are built to assist terrorists in the execution of terror attacks. In the past Gaza terrorists have utilized such tunnels to Israel for infiltration, detonation and abduction of Israeli citizens.”
