A joint Joe Settler and Jameel exclusive article.
As the IDF searches for tunnels near Gaza, the Hebrew University’s Center for Cave Exploration in the Geology Department stumbled across the deepest and longest underground cave and tunnel in Israel, descending to a depth of 187 meters.
The natural cave was discovered up north, near the Lebanese border.
Lebanon has caves that reach a depth of 600 meters, and deeper caves may yet be found in Israel.
The cave was explored by Vladimir Boslov, Yuri Lisovitch, and Boaz Langford.
Much to the delight of the Palestinian Authority, the tunnel’s discovery proves for them that Palestinians lived in Israel 100 million years ago, digging tunnels even way back then.
UNESCO immediately and unanimously accepted the Palestinian claim, and declared the cave a Palestinian Heritage Site.
Later in the day, the UN expressed “shock” when their inspectors discovered ancient explosives and primitive Hamas rockets hidden inside the cave, which they promptly handed back over to Hamas.Jameel@Muqata
