This morning's tunnel infiltration by two Hamas squads underlines the threat posted to the south, OC Southern Command, Maj.-Gen. Sami Turgeman, said Monday.

Dozens of terrorists in military uniform emerged from a tunnel, and were successfully stopped by the military, Turgeman added.

Uncovering the tunnels is a complex and challenging task, requiring intelligence and technology, he added.

The IDF's work in destroying tunnels, both inside Gaza and cross-border tunnels, "is disturbing the enemy," which spent years digging them, Turgeman said.
