The IDF discovered a 1.5 mile long terror tunnel that led from Gaza to Kibbutz Ein Hashlosha. The tunnel was discovered on Wednesday, but  the IDF censor only permitted publication of the find on Sunday.

The tunnel was a complex structure branching out in multiple directions,with multiple entry and egress points. It was laden with explosives and other surprises.

It is clear to the IDF that this tunnel was designed for kidnappings and a major terror attack.

The IDF has uncovered several tunnels leading from Gaza to nearby Jewish communities, over the past few years.

Recently, the IDF has begun a plan to reduce the military presence along the Gaza border as well as take away the armored vehicles belonging to the local town security units, based on, apparently incorrect assessments, that the threat level from Gaza has diminished.

A Gazan Arab was killed a few weeks ago as he tried to infiltrate into Israel across the fence.

    Again the stellar IDF shows the world that vigilance and steadfast alertness are indespensable in protecting the Israeli people. “I will say to the Lord you are my refuge and my fortress my God in whom I trust” May the people of Israel and the people here in the United States return to Yahweh, their true hope for everlasting peace and prosperity.God Bless the IDF!

    there is no such word as peace in their brain, such as it is. all that can be done is to protect, secure. the “talks” just give them a ferver for more lying and killing. which is all they do and apparently all they are capable of doing. everyone go home now and stop this ridiculousness from an american president who not only doesn’t know foreign policy, he doesn’t know “foreign”.

  6. TomTuna says:

    Terror tunnels go both ways

  7. dipmaster9 says:

    I beg to differ. The President does know foreign, being born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia as a Muslim, and never got a mind-set as an American. He is the worst hoax ever foisted on our American people

  8. Yechiel Baum says:

    suggest tunnel busters to be blown into the areas surrounding Israel from the Gaza side and if some Gazans get killed, consider them allies to the terrorists so nothing lost,.

  9. mydogpeter says:

    AWWWW, shucks……….you guys shoulda’ve waiited till the whole goddam Arab Legion wuz inside the tunnel, ho-ho-ing themselves on how clever they all are, and then blown the fu..kers from there to Northeast China without the benefit of a aeroplane!!!  Ya’ missed AGAIN!!!…………………………  Well, better luck nex’ time!!!

  10. wipe out all such tunnels using for the terrorists attack on Israeli people.

  11. Israel & its jews is choosen by the God hence no power/enemy can remove its existance from the Middle East. Iran,Syria or Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood or any other enemy can not defeat Israel because God is with them. May God instill all its blessings upon the people of Israel.

  12. The PM of Israel should not make any compromise with Middle Eastern enemies even if US President force them. Golan Heights and the West bank is belonging to Israel as they have sacrificed the blood of the Isaraeli soldiers. The tiny country is surrounded bythe Islamic enemies and hence has the right to defend themselves at anycost.
