Many tunnels have already reached Israeli land, and systems that could have been deployed to detect the digging of tunnels into Israel are no longer helpful.
Israel must identify and destroy the complex tunnel infrastructure of Gaza to prevent future kidnappings and terrorist activity before disaster occurs, a geologist and defense expert told The Jerusalem Post Thursday.
The advice comes from a man with an impressive track record. Langotsky, now 80 years old, is a renowned Israeli geologist and defense expert, During his IDF service, Langotsky received two Israel Defense Prizes, one personal and one together with his unit, as commander of the special technological operations unit in the armys intelligence branch.
Langotsky said the tunnels are being dug in a very professional manner, and the hundreds of tunnels that run under the Gaza Strip dont seem to pose any threat of land collapse.
The Hamas are very professional in the tunneling business...
he warned. Whatever they are doing is very impressive.
I tried to emphasize that we are talking about a longterm threat, not a short-term threat, he said. Not only is the threat long-term; it is longrange in terms of geography, with possible tunnel threats along the Egyptian and Lebanese borders.
Before becoming capable of destroying these tunnels, the Israeli security system first needs to discover their locations and routes, he said.

Fill them with flammable gas and ignite it. Then flood them.
I don’t know the absolute best and effective manner for destroying them, but I’m betting the IDF may have a plan ... :-) ...
Sooner or later the idiots will succeed at whatever they’re trying to do. Israel needs to force the UN and the Arab world to find some other place to warehouse the “palestinians”, and that place has to be out of rocket and tunnel range.
They need to find the underground bunkers where the Hamas leadership is hiding, and incinerate them there.
The IDF is not going further than four kilometers in, according to their announcements.
“Fill them with flammable gas and ignite it. Then flood them.”
Israel knows how to destroy the tunnels. But first they must find them and I believe Gaza is 20 miles long.
Plus, once they do identify the tunnels, they will have to destroy them without damaging the security wall/fence.
” Israel needs to force the UN and the Arab world to find some other place to warehouse the palestinians, and that place has to be out of rocket and tunnel range.”
I am thinking Lackland AFB. They are already warehousing illegals.
South Korea should send some observers, they need to learn this stuff too
ArcLight the Gaza border down to bedrock. Just roll the 2000 pound earth penetrators off the back ramp of a C-130.
Reminds me of WWII when our troops used flame throwers to persuade Japs (that's what they were in those days) our of the myriad tunnels on those islands. Similar tactics by the Irraelis against Hamas would be sure to bring cries of "Oh the humanity!" from the left and the press (excuse the redundancy), but in total war anything goes.
