The Gaza terror tunnel uncovered last week, was built with cement supplied by Israel, according to Reshet Bet.

The tunnel was built 18 meters underground using 500 tons of cement and concrete. It was dug over a 2 year period. It’s the third such tunnel uncovered this year.

In the past, as Hamas was using cement and steel to build reinforced bunkers and terror tunnels, in 2007 Israel restricted the flow of these materials primarily to humanitarian projects generally overseen or requested by international humanitarian organizations, often using European Union funding.Terror Tunnel

Following EU, UN, and international pressure, as well as official requests by the Palestinian Authority, Israel eased some of the restrictions on cement and iron imports.

But Hamas has apparently been diverting the cement and steel from various projects to build their latest mile and a half long terror tunnel which reached into Kibbutz Ein HaShlosha.

500 tons of cement and concrete is approximately 27 truckloads.

Whether the international organizations knew about the diversion is something that should be investigated.

An anonymous security source said that Raed al Atar, the head of Hamas’s military wing was responsible for this particular terror tunnel. Defense Minister Yaalon temporarily halted the transfer of building materials into Gaza this weekend.

In September, Amir Oren, spokesman for the radical leftwing Israeli NGO Gisha, complained to AFP about the amount of cement Israel was letting in. He said, “It doesn’t make up for the amount which came through the tunnels to Gaza in the first half of the year when they were in regular operation.”

  1. Are our leaders blind?

  5. Why not to send Israeli warriors through this tunnels to kill the Gazean leaders, this can be a good use, so the terrorists will never more try to make tunnels.

  6. factsrule4sure says:

    Regardless, Israel’s leaders will continue to delude themselves into thinking there is a solution to the millions of genocidal Arab Muslims illegally permitted west of the Jordan River other than the only truly effective AND compassionate solution, their repatriation to Jordan & Egypt. So far, Israel’s leaders have shown no desire to do so but are quite content to continue to allow instead the maiming, murder, & loss of properties that have been the fate of tens of thousands of innocent people. Israel’s leaders: those kind to the cruel are cruel to the kind. 
    Only an overhaul of Israel’s political system, the worst in the western world (a democratically elected dictatorship) can save Israel from its lifelong politicians, some of whom, like Peres, having been at the highest levels of govt. for many decades, who very well give far, far more aid & comfort to Israel’s enemies than to Israel.

  7. BonnieLoranger says:

    do not let anything go into Gaza anymore.

  8. Jennifer Orange Chantrill says:

    At least there is proof about the misuse of materials….AND no misunderstanding about Hamas'. I would stop the cement passing through the bordes for a significant period of time.

  9. Time for the good old booby trap!

  10. AC Stubbs says:

    EU is obscenely quiet about this

  11. or be ready waiting for the terrorists when they come up through this tunnel?

  12. SientjeSeinen says:

    factsrule4sure  I agree I dont trust your Simon Peres, as a leader. sorry

  13. Throw in nerve gas in front of a very powerful Fan instead of closing the tunnel.

  14. Hateful murdering devils those muslims over there…

  15. Michael Dar says:

    This asks for a full closure of Gaza…no water, no electricity, no fuel, no health care in Israeli hospitals etc….NOTHING! Creation of a 2 km. buffer-zone over the security fence…every single aggression, rocket etc from Gaza should be met with a huge "disproportionate" response…make the price-tag of terrorism so high that even the most fanatics of them will think twice before attacking Israel again…

  16. Dov Grauman says:

    The arabs are a nation of liars thieves and murderers. They will steal from their own people. They will murder their own people. They certainly lie to each other. When will the Israeli government wake up to the fact that arabs do not want peace They will settle for nothing less than the total destruction of Israel and that’s not going to happen. As for the rest of the world, we do havr some friends out there. For the rest they want the same as the arabs. Time to tell them to go to hell.
    .

  17. Agree with Michael Dar, cut them off completely, see how they manage. Gaza is full of terrorists and Israel can handle their rockets daily. International Press need to be made aware. Never anything on European News all my info comes from Israel who have nothing to gain by accommodating Gaza or the so called West Bank other than trouble and attacks. The EU is now back in the hands of Merkel who does not tolerate fools lightly and nor does German forget her crime against Jews during WWII.

  18. SientjeSeinen says:

    Dov Grauman   I agree, but Israel is taking a big chance by telling those who want Israel’s destruction, as the world will see Israel as being arrogant and not wanting peace, it is very difficult.  But eventually it will come to that, as it is written that G-d will gather all the nations against Israel, and He Himself will fight for them, so that the whole earth will see His glory, that He has loved Israel  but am not sure if it is the right time yet. as it will be in G-d’s time.

  19. Stefan Metodijev says:

    What should it do…??

  20. Dov Grauman says:

    The time is NOW.

  21. Stefan Metodijev , releasing a clear statement that the EU erred would be a nice start. Taking Hamas – publicly -to task for abusing the EU's support would be a great follow-up. Expressing support for Israel's decision to halt further building materials from reaching Gaza … Pie-in-the-Sky?

  22. *Thom Weishampel promoted to the position of Adviser to the Anti-Hamas-Tunnel Squad* I Love your suggestion! Place No 2 goes to 'catching them as they emerge' I wonder if the Israelis entertained these ideas? Maybe the long-term benefit of making it public was a wiser decision … nah … when did Israel EVER get credit for her moderate actions?
