Two new policies have been implemented in Gaza. The first: The IDF will fire on any terrorist approaching Israel. The second? Time to stop the tunnels.
First publication: The Israel Defense Forces is setting up a special security area in the northern Gaza Strip which is aimed at curbing attempts by terror groups to dig tunnels into Israel.
A senior officier told Ynet that the area will stretch a kilometer in Palestinian territory, which will be “clean” of building under which tunnels can be dug.
After the northern command’s decision to keep Hizbullah away from the border and the new policy under which every gunmen situated a kilometer away from the border is shot at, the southern command decided to implement a similar policy.
“Mostly, the excavations are dug in houses, hothouses or any other place where the action can be hidden. Therefore we decided to adopt
a new policy and simply to raze and attack every structure or cover hat can be used to conceal an entrance to a tunnel. As such every Palestinian attempt to dig a tunnel will be foiled,” he said.
Another policy to which I can say: AFT. (About friggin’ time, for those of you who were wondering.)
The only way to deal with terrorists is to cut them off before they can implement the terror. Of course the palestinians are going to scream about violations of this or that or the other thing, but it’s time to turn a deaf ear to that, too.
They had their chance to build Gaza. Israel left it a year ago. The palestinians have chosen terror and war, instead of peace and rebuilding.
