As Hamas terror tunnels continue to make news in the Gaza border region, at least one Jewish community in Judea and Samaria has reported a similar phenomenon. According to Breaking News Israel, a Christian-Zionist website, residents of Hebron say they uncovered a tunnel near the Beit Hadassah neighbourhood in the City of Fathers.

The website said members of the elite IDF engineering unit Yahalom uncovered a network of terror tunnels in and around the Hebron area during Operation Brothers Keeper, the massive manhunt for Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Sha’ar and Naftali Fraenkel.

.

“We have just discovered a tunnel in Hebron, next to Beit Hadassah, under an Arab house, in the direction of the neighborhood playground for children,” Hebron community spokesman David Wilder told the website.

The report cited a series of tunnels and holes used to store weapons and explosives.

    How is it that the IDF does not have a unit of soldier that sweep the borders every day with ground penetrating radar? It would be so easy to detect these tunnels!!!

Who is Horowitz? He’s Netanyahu’s eyes and ears. He’s very close to him, literally his personal representative everywhere…

This is a chart of the rocket and missile arsenal that initiated Israel's counter terror Operation Protective Edge, and was used by Hamas and allied terrorists -- and was fired from site deep within the Gaza civilian population against Israel's families, in the thousands, for 50 days. At least 11 cease-fires were broken by Hamas.

in a new report, Amnesty International charges “Gaza armed groups’ with war crimes in last summer’s Operation Protective Edge.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Ruby Rivlin

If there are no surprises, Netanyahu is expected to form a coalition, after some tough negotiations, with the Likud, Bayit Yehudi, Kulanu, Yisrael Beytenu, UTJ and Shas.

Moshe Kachlon

One wonders how many Prime Ministers Herzog envisions sitting in that one chair at the same time.

Netanyahu is expected to have 61 recommendations in his favor.

There’s much disappointment within Yesh Atid as they head into the oppositions.

If the media hadn’t been so eager to oust Netanyahu, voter apathy could have made that happen.

Netanyahu said he wants to have a government formed within the next 2 to 3 weeks.

The overwhelming electoral victory by the Likud was nothing less than a revolution, and an absolutely clear mandate from the people.

At 50% of the votes counted, the Likud pulls way ahead… but what will the remaining 50% do?

A very happy PM Netanyahu declared victory at the Likud victory party.

The employees of Israel’s Knesset are also completing preparations as they bid farewell to those Knesset Members leaving and welcome new members to Israel’s parliament building.

The final numbers aren’t in, and Yachad is sitting right on the wire.
