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!!!

Minister and chair of Bayit Yehudi party, Naftali Bennett.

The primary road block is the position that Bayit Yehudi party head Naftali Bennett will receive.

Baruch Marzel.

Marzel not sorry Yachad party’s loss cost Bayit Yehudi seats in Knesset. Bennett accuses Netanyahu of thinking he is a sucker.

Yoav Horowitz

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

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

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.

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.

Final voter counts are in, if Yachad doesn’t petition the courts over voter fraud…

“The truth is it’s surprising to us as well, but it turns out each one of us voted their hearts.”

The anti-Bibi campaign’s quiet change in tax status both came too late and constitutes an admission of wrongdoing.

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?
