The IDF changed its mind and allowed Hamas and Islamic Jihad to approach 200 meters from the border fence in order to continue looking for their dead terror tunnel terrorists. This decision was apparently done in exchange for nothing.
Hamas, on their part, say their searches are over for the missing five terrorists, and they have all been declared Shahidim (martyrs).
The father of one of the missing Gazan tunnel terrorists has turned to the Israeli Supreme Court, petitioning the court through the services of the NGO Adallah, to force Israel to permit Hamas to search for the bodies left in the tunnel.
Arab media is reporting that the IDF is preparing to destroy a newly discovered section of a tunnel near Khan Younis.
The presence of two senior Islamic Jihad terrorists who were killed in the tunnel implies they may have been planning to use the tunnel in the near future in an attack.
