Israeli soldiers wound 3 Palestinians along Gaza border

Israeli soldiers wound 3 Palestinians along Gaza border

Gaza residents, Hamas is frittering away your money on tunnels leading nowhere.

"This is a terror tube that attached to additional tunnels at the Gaza Strip", Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus explained.

The military destroyed the tunnel by pumping materials into it that render it useless and do not allow for reconstruction, Haaretz reported.

Former Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said that Israel is now the "world leader" in defending borders.

Israel had been monitoring construction of the tunnel network for years but made a decision to move in after tunnel diggers began working their way up to the surface, a military spokesman told The Times of Israel. "We will get to them all".

The army had been monitoring the tunnel system and chose to act when the tunnel crossed into Israeli territory, "tens of meters" from the southern Israeli community of Nahal Oz.

"It's a tunnel that cost millions of dollars to dig, money that instead of going to ease the hardship of Gaza's residents has sunk in the sand", he said.

"The [Israeli Defense Forces] doesn't even hunt an escalation. We are defending our borders", Conricus told The Times of Israel. The laboratory, which has been operating under the military's Gaza Division for the past two years, uses advanced technology to discover the attack tunnels.

The laboratory has accomplished proven achievements in locating and thwarting five terrorist tunnels in recent months by combining the capabilities of the engineering, intelligence and the technological front, noted the IDF.

Israel has killed 35 Palestinians since the marches began on the border of the Gaza Strip at the end of March, and wounded around 3,000 people, including more than 1,500 with live bullets.

The Egyptians fear the weekly demonstrations along the border between Gaza and Israel could spin out of control and lead to another military confrontation between Israel and Hamas, a Palestinian Authority official in Ramallah said on Sunday.

In a press release issued yesterday, campaigners - including War on Want, Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Defence for Children International-Palestine - said HSBC now holds £831 million worth of shares in companies that sell weapons and military equipment to Israel.

Israel has fought three wars with the Islamist movement Hamas since 2008, and the group has used tunnels to carry out attacks in the past.
