Netanyahu: Israel will continue to work against ‘underground threats’

After the military announces the destruction of a Hamas attack tunnel leading from the Gaza Strip into Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel will continue working to counter “underground threats.”

“Over the weekend the IDF thwarted another tunnel from the Gaza Strip toward Israel,” says Netanyahu at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting. “We are operating in all sectors on behalf of Israel’s security and we underscore our backing for the IDF soldiers who are guarding our borders.”

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman described the tunnel earlier today as the “longest and deepest” to be discovered in Israel.
