‘If Israel is smart, tunnels will become a Hamas graveyard’
Likud MK and ex-Shin Bet chief Avi Dichter believes that Hamas’ tunnels under the Israel-Gaza Strip border could turn from an asset into a liability for the terrorist group.
Dichter said, “With wise actions, the defense establishment in general and the IDF in particular will be able to turn the tunnels in Gaza into the largest Hamas cemetery of all time. That is how I see things.”
Dichter went on to say that the threat posed by Hamas tunnels could be “turned into an opportunity” if the Israeli military properly uses the lessons it has learned from subterranean combat.
“We can turn lemons into lemonade,” Dichter said.
Meanwhile, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said on Friday that his group had uncovered underground cameras and sensors that were meant to monitor Hamas’ tunnel construction efforts.
