(Scroll down for video) More than a dozen terrorists were killed after being caught infiltrating Israel through a secret tunnel, the Tazpit News Agency reported.
On Thursday morning, the IDF thwarted an attack by Hamas terrorists. Soldiers identified 13 terrorists attempting to infiltrate Israel through the terror tunnel constructed by Hamas.
The tunnel led underground from the southern Gaza Strip towards the southern Israeli community of Sufa. The soldiers thwarted an impending terror attack, preventing the terrorists from attacking an Israeli kibbutz.
An attack could have had deadly and devastating consequences if carried out, an IDF source said. No injuries to IDF soldiers were reported.
Terror tunnels are just one example of Hamas’ constant attempts to violate Israel’s sovereignty and security, by carrying out lethal attacks against Israeli civilians.
“As the IDF demonstrated in recent days, Hamas will not be able to launch strikes against Israel without consequences,” the source said.
IDF Spokesman Brigadier General Motti Almoz, stated after the attack that judging by the equipment and weaponry the terrorists were carrying, the attack would have been devastating.
“We could have woken up to a horrible morning with many dead and wounded. Thanks to the alertness and preparedness it ended this way,” Almoz said.
The IDF estimates that there are some 10 more tunnels ready for use.
