JERUSALEM Israel entered its latest conflict with Hamas armed with a high-tech arsenal, real-time battlefield intelligence and strong domestic support for dealing a heavy blow to Hamas.
But again on Friday, Israeli forces were taken by surprise, this time with two soldiers killed and one taken prisoner when militants once again attacked from a tunnel in Gaza.
Hamas has changed its doctrine and is using the tunnels as a main method of operation, said Israel Ziv, a retired general who headed the militarys Gaza division and its operations directorate. This is something we learned amid the fighting.
Of the 32 fortified tunnels that the Israeli military has exposed so far, at least 11 run deep beneath the border into Israeli territory. Others are part of an underground labyrinth inside Gaza connecting buildings, weapons stores and concealed rocket launchers.

I am shocked that they are shocked.
Pump them with a fuel air combo and set i’m off.
Or on the other hand, maybe they’re just pretending to be surprised to keep their intel sources protected...
I was going to post that but thought better of it.
Fortunately, we are only insignificant Freepers.
What we say isn't very important.;-)
3-4000 suicide bombers emerging from these tunnels, all at once, would have caused chaos and carnage beyond rational human comprehension.
And Obama’s Muzzie Brohood advisors would likely have CHEERED it.
Aren’t we all glad so many Freepers threw temper tantrums and stayed home in 2008, and 2012?
I might send in those cameras that we use for sewer pipes with explosions attached. Maybe we can make the roaches go for the light.
These tunnels should be detectable as they enter Israel.
Yep. And unless we find a way to exhume Ronald Reagan and breathe some life into him, they are going to stay home again and give us Hillary in 2016.
I read that from Egypts side of the tunnel, they are pumping in raw sewage.
I recommend pumping in concrete.
I prefer raw sewage. For Hamas, it must be like running into a mirror.
Israelis are a lot like American Jews. Very liberal until they learn of their own risk.
Bibi has told them the truth and now they are on his side.
Bibi is herding cats...a very difficult task.
Tunnels are among hardest thing to attack with exp0lises, ex combat engineer.
Pump in pig guts and pig shyte into the Hamas tunnels. Since there are few pigs in Israel we should send them a ship with freezers to bring them tons upon tons of frozen pig guts to be defrosted and used as needed against Hamas tunnels and other Jihad operations
obama thanks them and it looks as if the same people might stay home again if the PERFECT candidate does not get the nomination. SAD
