An underground wall might emerge around the Gaza Strip in Israel’s effort to prevent attacks by Hamas militants, Ynet reports. Meanwhile, the Israeli Ministry of Defense didn’t provide comments on the issue.
Early on Friday, two oversize excavators appeared near Khan Younis, the town I the Gaza Strip.
According to Israeli military, the threat comes from 30 attack tunnels around the Gaza Strip, constructed by Hamas militants. Half of them stretched through the fence to Israeli residential area.
These facilities have been detected over the course of the war in 2014. However, sounds of digging are still heard underground sometimes. In particular, 3 new tunnels have been revealed in the area.
