Terror Tunnel Used 500 Tons of Cement

The terror tunnel

The Gaza terror tunnel uncovered last week was built using an estimated 500 tons of concrete and cement, including 24,000 concrete slabs that Israel permitted into Gaza.

The tunnel took 2 years to build, and apparently wasn’t yet completed. It started in Absan al-Zarir, east of Khan Yunis in Gaza, and had exits within the fence of Kibbutz Ein HaShlosha in a wheat field.

The tunnel’s length was approximately a mile long, and was located around 18 meters underground.

The Gazans laid electrical and cable wire along the length of the tunnel.

    I don't know if the BBC, CNN mentioned this news. I did hear it on Euronews, but the most significant point was omitted. This is the fact that all the material Israel allowed into Gaza as a humanitarian gesture for the purpose of housing etc of the population was used solely for terrorism purposes. Israel must make a big advertising campaign about this fact. Really stress how wrong pressure on Israel to allow goods into Gaza because of it's misuse.

    I think that this tunnel was a good use of Humanitarian aid. Instead of feeding the people, it went into a tunnel for the destruction of the Jewish People. Perhaps Israel in the future should distribute the aid directly to the people and leave the Palestinians out of the mix.

    stooopid stooopid israel straight out of Chelm with their idiotic “humanitarianism”
     why not give the Hama dogs bullets and guns  and simplify the process of your SELF DESTRUCTION?  
    a Greek expression applies: though whom the gods wish to  destroy they first make mad…

    Israel should stop letting aid for Gaza in. period.
