(Worthy News) - The tunnel the IDF blew up was “meant to bring about the release of Palestinian prisoners from the Israeli prisons,” Khaled al-Batash, a senior Islamic Jihad official, said Tuesday.

Essentially, according to various media reports, that means it was intended to be used for the abduction of Israeli soldiers.

Al-Batash was speaking at the funeral of three of the terrorists who were killed Monday when the tunnel, which ran from Khan Yunis into Israel, collapsed on them when it was blown up by the IDF.

Al-Batash said Islamic Jihad will dig another tunnel for the exact same purposes. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

  1. Now who is inhumane? Acting like they would simply be stealing livestock to be traded back to the owners?

    Sounds illegal in every countries value system but the Nazi's and Islam.
