So this "operation," ironically like the medical operations called "procedures" was very frightening for the average Israel, even in Tel Aviv. Yes, do you remember that Tel Aviv was under attack?
The kibbutzim and moshavim in the south are still terrorized by the revelation that the Arab Hamas Gazan terrorists have been using the cement sent by Israel to build schools and hospitals for a sophisticated network of tunnels right to their doors. And in northern Israel, it's believed that a similar network of tunnels also exists. It was via a tunnel that Gilad Shalit was taken immediately after his capture.
And now there are reports that the Gazan Arab terrorists are working hard to reconstruct the tunnels Israel destroyed last summer and build new and more extensive ones.
Hamas has begun using heavy machinery and engineering tools to accelerate the excavation of attack tunnels leading from the Gaza Strip under the Israeli border, sources in the Palestinian enclave told the Times of Israel Wednesday.
The equipment, the sources said, includes small bulldozers with the ability to maneuver in tight spaces. From the Israeli side of the border, larger tractors are clearly visible above the ground as the machines prepare the tunnel entries.
The Gaza-based terrorist organization has been using whatever cement it can get its hands on for the construction of the tunnels, and fortifying the walls of its underground structures with wood as well.
