Amos Gilad: Completion of Tunnel Neutralization Delayed as More Tunnels Found

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.

  1. Israel can thank US for the aid to Palestine that made these tunnels possible.

  2. Consider the possibility there were far more than originally known !

  3. Perhaps, Israel will develop a seismic technology soon to easily discover tunnels. Then, it can export it to other democratic nations. As it has often been the case, “Necessity is the mother of invention.”

  4. Goodness they have been building for years think Israel ha been lazy.

  5. Wonder how many tunnels run under the U S boarder?

  6. Some of the found ones on U S Boarders look this sophisticated.

  7. Save your false pieties and sentiments for the Leftist media and Hamas apologists (e.g., BBC, CNN, CBC, etc); we Jews do not need lessons on morality and compassion.

  8. go Israel …God is with you forever! He will defeat your enemies…God bless Israel and the Jewish people!

  9. just keep at it. we love and respect you. Am Yisrael Chai.

  10. just keep at it. we love and respect you. Am Yisrael Chai.

  11. It sounds like the IDF needs several sets of ground penetrating radar.

  16. Those stinking rats have been busy for a long time. That tells me the people I n Gaza knew all along what was going on. Why didn’t they get out before the rockets started flying ??

  17. Tanya Klein says:

    I am amazed that all the roads, bridges and infrastructure in Gaza didn’t collapse from all the underground digging.

  18. Judy Klein says:

    I fear they will ALL only be found if we go thru Gaza inch by inch.

  19. Janet Sisler says:

    The residents in Gaza surely knew about the tunnels. They are everywhere.

  20. Judith Dowla says:

    let us consider how many cities have been built layer by layer on top of each other in the land of Canaan for centuries.

  21. Loren Renee says:

    Flood it and add alligators.

  22. Please, please do not stop until they are all destroyed.

  23. Into the depths of hell…..at $ 3million a drop…what a bargain for hamas….

There can only be a finite number of tunnels, but the IDF keeps finding more of them…

Damage to 3 Light Rail stations in Shuafat July 2 2014 due to Arab riots

Arab terror vows notwithstanding, Jerusalem Light Rail service has already been restored to northern neighborhoods.

The Israeli media portrays Israeli brass and ex-brass who oppose Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak on the Iran issue as a group whose assessment is based solely on a cold hard analysis of the situation. Unfortunately, there is a reasonable possibility that the Israeli brass and ex-brass themselves have piggy-backed their agenda to the Iranian debate.

For years the Egyptians have been trying to erode the Sinai force restrictions set in the peace treaty they signed with Israel. Force restrictions that were a necessary condition for Israel agreeing to restore the Sinai to Egyptian control. The Egyptians see the force restrictions as impinging on their sovereignty. Israel always considered the force restrictions as critical for the Jewish State’s national security.

Minister Benny Begin and others who oppose the law argue that it will be voided by the Supreme Court and that the law will damage Israel on the international front. If the Supreme Court indeed voids the law this will no doubt bring praise for Israel from the international community – not condemnation. And rest assured the court will rule on the law in lightning speed.

Oslo took Yasser Arafat and his PLO off the dung heap of history, when only radicals in the West were talking about anything beyond a Palestinian autonomy, and lead ultimately to the diplomatic challenge we face today – with the critical message of UNSC 242 – no requirement of full withdrawal – being ignored.

Making gestures should in no way be accompanied by a reconciliatory approach towards objectionable Palestinian behavior and Palestinian pronouncements. Toning down criticism of the PA not only doesn’t serve the interests of Israel – it ultimately does not serve the interests of the Palestinians.

There is certainly much to be learned from the events of 1970 and the nightmare that followed in 1973. Much that is extremely relevant to our own times. Israel paid dearly in 1973 for accepting the Egyptian violation of the 1970 agreement. And the Jewish State may yet again pay dearly if it continues to accept the ongoing security violations of Oslo in the Gaza Strip.
