Terrorists emerged from tunnel into Israel, opened fire on IDF jeep, killing Amotz Greenberg, 45, and Adar Barsano, 20; IDF fears there are 20 more such tunnels.
Two IDF officers were killed Saturday morning when Hamas terrorists infiltrated Israeli territory via a tunnel under the border fence from the central Gaza Strip and ambushed a military vehicle patrolling on the Israeli side of the border, the IDF said Saturday evening.
The two were named as Amotz Greenberg, 45, a major in the reserves from Hod Hasharon, and Sgt. Adar Barsano, 20, from Nahariya. The information was cleared for publication after the families were informed.
The deaths were the first of soldiers killed by Hamas since Operation Protective Edge began on July 8.
The terrorist cell infiltrated Israeli territory through a tunnel, in an apparent attempt to carry out a major attack on one of the nearby communities, the army said.
The army believes there are 20 more such tunnels, and that further efforts to infiltrate and kill Israelis are likely. Larger contingents of soldiers were deployed to the Israeli side of the Gaza border area after the incident, military sources said, to guard against further such attacks.

Try clicking in the keywords at the top of the thread ... it’s “stisraelhamas” and you should see that in the Keyword list.
Or, you could use that term in the search box (you have to make sure it’s a keyword search, though).
I tried that link, though, and it worked for me, so I’m not sure what’s going on. Let me know what works for you ... :-) ...
Yeah, that would work ... and the reason I say that is because Hamas is supposed to ... likewise ... have the tunnels booby-trapped too, to blow up or kill a few IDF soldiers. They’re real sneaky that way!
Did it work through the list of keywords at the top, or did you do a search on the term?
Does this link work for you?
Nice, that link works.. Thank you Star.

Wouldn’t it be a lot more entertaining to put smoke on one end, and just wait for them at the other end first before collapsing them?
