Work Begun on Underground Barrier along Gaza Border, Israeli Defense Officials Say

And they will make Hamas pay for it!

Wall Street Journal

Heavy machinery is seen on the Israeli side of the border with Gaza Thursday Israeli defense officials said the government has begun work on a massive underground barrier along the border with Gaza.

"JERUSALEM—Israeli defense officials on Thursday said the government has begun work on a massive underground barrier along the border with Gaza meant to block Hamas militants from tunneling into Israel.
"The project is the hallmark of a huge Israeli effort to halt the Hamas tunnels, which military officials have identified as a strategic threat. Hamas militants have used underground tunnels to attack Israelis.
"During a 2014 war, Hamas militants managed on several occasions to make their way into Israel through their tunnel network, though they didn’t reach nearby civilian areas.
"Israel destroyed some 32 tunnels during that conflict and has announced the discovery of several more tunnels since then. As a result, the military has invested efforts in technologies to detect, destroy and block them. Israel has already surrounded Gaza with a sophisticated aboveground fence fortified with sensors, cameras, barbed wire and watch towers." . . .
Salah Bardawil, a senior Hamas official in Gaza, said the group wouldn’t be deterred. “The Palestinian people and the resistance can overcome all the obstacles made by the occupation. The resistance is creative and advanced and doesn’t care about the occupation’s procedures,” he said.
This is why Israel must have a wall.  "During the show, which features children aged 4-10, one young boy sings, “When I wander into Jerusalem, I will become a suicide bomber.” Afterward, other children stand to call for “Jihad! Holy war to the end against the Zionist enemy.' ”
