The Potential Lessons of the Terror Tunnel Discovery

December 17, 2023

The IDF on Sunday displayed videos of a massive Hamas terror tunnel it discovered near the Erez Crossing, just 400 meters away from Israeli territory. On today's Israel Uncensored, Josh Hasten argues that Erez, which has been used as the only pedestrian entryway from Gaza to Israel, should be shut down. The Oct. 7 attacks taught us that terrorists in Gaza took advantage of Israel's humanitarian gestures - allowing Gazans to receive medical care in our hospitals, and also took advantage of work permits in Israel - to feed Hamas intelligence, which ultimately was used against us. Israel used Erez to show kindness and provide livelihoods, while Hamas used Erez to launch attacks. Have we learned our lesson?
