April 18, 2016 Islamic Murder, Mayhem, and Mutilation


Tel Aviv ― Israel’s military said it discovered a tunnel built by Hamas from the Gaza Strip in Israel for the first time since 2014, when Israel launched an operation to destroy the Islamist movement’s underground network.

Soldiers discovered the tunnel recently and destroyed it it to ensure Hamas operatives couldn’t use it to launch an attack, said army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner on Monday.

The tunnel was between 100 and 130 feet below ground, he said, built with reinforced concrete with sophisticated communication and electricity lines running its length.

Hamas’ armed wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, confirmed that Israel had found one of its tunnels and warned of future attacks.
