IDF planes finished on Jan. 14, 2018, demolishing a terror tunnel that passed under the Kerem Shalom Crossing from Gaza into Israel.

The IDF says with certainty that the tunnel belonged to Hamas. The tunnel penetrated 180 meters (2,953 feet) under the gas pipeline that runs between Egypt and Gaza. It started in the Rafiah area 900 meters (591 feet) into Gaza and extended into Israeli territory. IDF Spokesperson Ronen Manelis said, “Last night, we carried out a professional and precise operation over a blatant violation of Israeli sovereignty.

The demolition of the attack tunnel system is an important factor in the policy of harming Hamas’ strategic ability. The message to Gaza leadership and residents is clear: Invest in the sanctity of life, and not in burial tunnels,” according to INN.

Intercede that every terrorist tunnel leading into Israel will be discovered and destroyed. May the enemy become weary of hatred, waste of money and destruction and new leaders with a vision for peace be raised up in Gaza.
