The head of the Defense Ministry’s political-defense desk, Amos Gilad, said in a live interview on Israel Radio Reshet Bet today that the reason it is taking longer than previously anticipated to neutralize the tunnels in the Gaza Strip is that Israeli security activities continue to find more tunnels.
Gilad said that Israel would not stop the operation to neutralize the tunnels until all known tunnels are neutralized.
When Gilad was asked if there is a maximum time that the operation could take, he responded that a finite number of tunnels actually exist so there is, by definition, a limit.
