Army reveals ‘laboratory’ for detecting Gaza tunnels

After announcing earlier today the destruction of a major Hamas attack tunnel reaching into Israel from Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces unveils details of its special “laboratory” for locating tunnels coming from the coastal enclave.

The laboratory was established two years ago as part of the IDF’s Gaza Division and is headed by Captain B, who was trained in electrical engineering and chemistry.

“Under him work the best minds in an assortment of technological and research fields, including members of the Ground Forces’ Technology Brigade, physicist, engineers, intelligence personnel and geologists,” the army says.

The IDF describes the laboratory as its “technological arm” for tunnel detection and says it works in concert with operational and intelligence elements to locate tunnels on the Gaza border.
