Israeli residents near Gaza border say: “The terror tunnel digging hasn’t stopped, even for a minute”
The Jerusalem Post (via Gateway) Local government officials in towns near the Gaza border reported on Sunday receiving complaints from residents who say they hear digging underground. “According to the complaints, the digging hasn’t stopped for a moment.”
The complaints come less than a day after Israeli warplanes launched reprisal raids against targets in the Gaza Strip. Palestinian Islamists in Gaza fired a rocket into Israeli territory earlier on Saturday. Earlier last week, at least two rockets were fired at Gaza frontier towns.
Local residents believe that the next round of fighting is simply a matter of time. “We knew this would repeat itself, this trickle of missiles,” said Eran Zomer, a 27-year-old resident of the moshav of Amioz. “Very simply, the IDF didn’t do the job the last time.”
