IDF destroys Hamas underwater terror tunnel

(JERUSALEM POST) — The IDF has neutralized, for the first time, a naval terror tunnel belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization, the IDF Spokesperson’s unit announced Sunday.

The tunnel, which was operational but did not actually extend into Israeli waters, would have enabled militants who would enter from a Hamas military post in the northern Gaza Strip to exit into the sea unnoticed, making it possible to carry out out terrorist acts against the State of Israel from the sea.

The route of the tunnel, which reached a depth of 2-3 meters and was 3 kilometers from the border with Israel, was identified by the IDF as part of a campaign against Hamas’s naval force in the past year.
