IDF destroys mile-long section of underground Hamas tunnel

by ian

Israel announced that it destroyed a long stretch of the largest known Hamas tunnel.

Members of an elite unit and combat engineers made their way through the 7-mile tunnel in a recently released video. The IDF also released the footage of the dramatic moment when the trigger was pulled, detonating more than a mile of that tunnel.

The IDF reported that this particular section was an underground crossing route between northern and southern Gaza for Hamas terrorists.

Earlier today, IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari said Israeli forces are moving into Shifa Hospital, the largest operational hospital in Gaza, on account of new information that Hamas officials are operating there.

He added that the operation will include IDF doctors and Arabic translators to care for and communicate with any patients in the hospital.
