Israel captures key area near Egypt littered with tunnels

by ian


The IDF said yesterday that it took control of massive amounts of Hamas tunnels alongside the Gaza-Egypt border known as the Philadelphi corridor. While Egypt has complained about Israel inching closer to its border, saying it could potentially violate a 1979 peace accord, Israel says that this is where Hamas smuggles its weapons.

IDF Spokesman Daniel Hagari added that Israeli forces also found tunnels right along Egypt’s border.
