85% of Strategic Hamas Tunnels in Khan Yunis Destroyed

The IDF announced on Monday, March 4, that it has destroyed 85% of the strategic tunnels in Khan Yunis. The announcement came shortly after a parallel update that the air force had eliminated a terrorist squad less than 30 minutes after the squad fired rockets toward Hatzerim and Be’eri on Saturday.

All of this came as on Sunday the IDF launched its first full division-level attacks in Khan Yunis in multiple weeks, having achieved general control in early February, and reduced military activities there to smaller-scale attacks in recent weeks.

During the large operation in recent days, somewhere between 80 to a couple of hundred Hamas terrorists were arrested, around 35-40 were killed, and several thousand civilians were evacuated.

Further, on Tuesday, the military announced that the IDF destroyed the largest terror tunnel that was uncovered in northern Gaza since the beginning of the Israel-Hamas war. The tunnel extends about four kilometers long and ends near the Erez crossing but does not cross into Israeli territory.

The tunnel route has several branches, forming a wide and branched network of tunnels. Along the route, there are sewerage, electricity, and communication infrastructures, as well as the top doors, which were designed to prevent the entry of IDF forces. The tunnel allows the movement of vehicles inside it, and many weapons of Hamas were found in it. (JPost / VFI News)
