In recent days the IDF has completed the destruction of the remnants of a tunnel, most of which was destroyed last summer during Operation Protective Edge.
The tunnel’s path was taken out of commission and was under the full control of the IDF prior to its destruction. The operation took place in Israeli territory near the border fence with Gaza. Soldiers also uncovered a number of weapons left over from the summer conflict.
The efforts are part of the IDF Southern Command initiative to fortify defenses in the Gaza border area.
