Army engineers are beginning a wide-scale operation to destroy Hamas tunnels in areas of the Gaza Strip that have come under Israeli control since the start of the ground offensive,APA reports citing the Walla news.

The combat engineers are using various types of robots and explosive devices to destroy the tunnels, detonate any booby traps installed by Hamas, and kill the armed men, the report says.

“We are going to collapse the entrances and the tunnels on them. It will become a death zone. They made a mistake, they chose to be in a place they could not escape from. They will die in the tunnels,” a senior officer in the Southern Command tells Walla.

The report says the troops have already destroyed some 100 tunnels not counting the ones hit in airstrikes.
