The IDF has discovered a smuggling tunnel loaded with explosives in central Gaza, one day after the military exposed a tunnel that that had been dug to a kibbutz.
Outgoing IDF Spokesman Yoav Mordecai said that soldiers will explode the central Gaza tunnel.
The government and military policy generally has been to bomb terrorists’ tunnels only as a retaliatory measure after rocket and mortar attacks on Israelis.
The Defense Ministry never has explained why it does not order the IDF to destroy the tunnel without waiting for terrorist attacks.
