Omer Bar-Lev, a lawmaker from the center-left opposition Zionist Union party, warned on Saturday that “the terrorists in the Gaza Strip are rebuilding their tunnels with the same speed and intensity as before.”

Bar-Lev, a member of Knesset who during his military service rose to commander of the elite reconnaissance unit Sayeret Matkal, told a town hall meeting in Herzliya on Saturday that “this government has no policy.”

“If I was the prime minister, I’d say in a loud and clear voice, ‘The moment that a tunnel reaches 200 meters from the border fence on the Gaza side, the IDF will enter Gaza and destroy it’,” he said.
