Many of us have seen this by now.
My questions are: do they have a COMPLETE subterranean plan of the Hezbollah tunnels. The technology in Israel is deficient. There is a smugness that has been rudely awakened by the work of Hamas. The USA has seen through its satellites the full extent if Hamas tunnels.
This makes John, sycophant of the year, Kerry, somebody who I’d take as seriously as his boofy hair nest.
Obama the growing (sic) impotent is a dangerous man.
If they knew all this and didn’t pass it on then any Jew who votes Democrat needs a Refuah.
If they knew and passed it onto Israeli intelligence, and our arrogant leaders underestimated the threat, they should face a formal investigation.
HAMAS subterranean tunnels need to be identified and pre-emptively destroyed if their exits are in Israel. It’s time to develop a good gas to blow through these tunnels.
Thousands of Hamas-linked terrorists planned to invade Israel on the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah), which begins on September 24, according to an Israel security source.
First reported by Ma’ariv, then in English by i24news, “thousands of terrorists were meant to cross over to Israel from Gaza through the tunnels and kill and kidnap as many Israelis as they could. The source added that the army learned about the huge planned attack during the interrogations of Hamas prisoners, captured during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.”
Reports state that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informed his cabinet about the foiled plot during a Thursday cabinet meeting. The leader of the Jewish State reportedly expressed to officials that if this attack was not stopped, the number of Israeli fatalities may have been higher than the over 2,200 deaths Israel suffered during 1973 Yom Kippur War.
During Israel’s recent incursion into Gaza, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have set their sights on destroying Hamas’ sophisticated tunnel system. In the past, the U.S.-designated terror group has successfully infiltrated the Jewish State, resulting in the killing and kidnapping of Israeli soldiers. The last occurrence was on July 19 when two IDF soldiers lost their lives and the assailants were able to escape back to Gaza through a tunnel. Gen. James T. Conway, USMC (ret.) recently returned from Israel, where he was joined by a dozen retired U.S. generals and admirals, sponsored by Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). While there, the group toured a tunnel from Gaza recently discovered near an Israeli kindergarten.
“Unlike tunnels that I had seen during the Iraq war that were designed for smuggling, this Hamas tunnel was designed for launching murder and kidnapping raids. The 3-mile-long tunnel was reinforced with concrete, lined with telephone wires, and included cabins unnecessary for infiltration operations but useful for holding hostages,” the retired General wrote in the Wall Street Journal.
Israel has reportedly destroyed over 30 tunnels during “Operation Protective Edge.” The Jewish State contends that Hamas, which governs Gaza, devotes resources to building tunnels to commit acts of terrorism, instead of building homes, parks, schools and hospitals.
An article published by the Gatestone Institute quotes an Israeli spokesman’s observation that “there are two Gazas, one above ground and one below ground: an underground terrorist city

I don’t see how these tunnels could be visible from a sattelite.
I read about the technology but can’t recall where. Obviously more than plain satellites unless there is much more we don’t know
I am not one of their team. I assume that by digging a tunnel you have quite some earth to get rid of. If you photograph constantly, you can see the changes in the topography. Once you see a change you focus on it.
Sometimes you see a pile of freshly dug earth, or some earth where it should not belong. This was the way that the IDF found the three boys murdered a month ago.
They hid the earth inside buildings.
Maybe they did, but very unlikely. I have not been there to find out, and none of my acquaintances who have been there told me about that. It surely is not a most secret information not to be revealed.
If they did that, how could the inhabitants live there. I haven’t seen or read that the IDF encountered earth filled buildings. It is quite difficult to put women and children in earth filled homes.
Do you have information about what you wrote?
Foreign Policy reports: “Hamas went to extraordinary lengths to hide construction of the tunnels from Israeli intelligence and military forces. In a scene straight out of the classic film The Great Escape, fighters emptied bags of flour — humanitarian food aid from the United Nations — and then used them to remove dirt from tunnel construction sites, Yakubovich said. Whenever Israeli air forces saw the bags on the surface, they assumed they were food deliveries, not evidence of Hamas secretly building an underground infrastructure. “This was a very clever way to make sure the IDF would not fire upon them,” Yakubovich said. “Hamas exploited international goodwill to hide terror activities.”
It sounds logical.
I hope that the IDF kept the photos of these bags to enable her to find the tunnels.
