Cleared for publication: Israel is holding 5 bodies of Muslim terrorists killed during the explosion of the Gaza terror tunnel deep into Israel’s sovereign territory last week.
In response to the IDF’s announcement, the Islamic Jihad terror group alluded to future kidnappings to force exchange deals for the bodies of their croaked terrorists.
The Israeli army last week made effective use of technological advances to find and destroy a terror tunnel running under the border with Hamas-ruled Gaza.
The tunnel was already relatively deep into Israel’s sovereign territory, and was believed to be heading toward the nearby Israeli town of Kissufim.
The family of Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, whose body is being held in Gaza, intends to petition the Supreme Court against the political-security cabinet, claiming that it is not implementing its decisions to increase the pressure on Hamas to release Goldin’s body, that of Sergeant Oron Shaul and three living Israelis held by Hamas.
Earlier today Islamic Jihad terror group leader Khaled al-Batash addressed the current situation with Israel in a TV interview, threatened that they have ‘more than missiles’ to respond and slammed the PA for what he called an “inadequate response” to Israel’s bombing of their terror tunnel deep into Israel’s sovereign territory.
