Army uncovers weapons tunnel

Sunday, December 11, 2005 |

Colonel Moni Katz said that information on the tunnel had been conveyed to the Palestinians, but the Palestinian Authority did not deal with the matter. “Once again we see an exploitation of facilities intended for the Palestinians’ welfare by the terror organizations,” he said. This was the first time since Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza in August that Palestinians have tried to burrow underneath the border fence surrounding the Strip.
