The Israeli army intends to flood Gaza border areas with water in order to destroy underground tunnels built by the Palestinian resistance.
An Israeli military official told Maariv newspaper, on condition of anonymity, that the army plans to flood underground cross-border tunnels, as Egypt has done on its border with Gaza. 60 miles of land extending along the border of Gaza will be flooded with water, according to the official.
He added, according to the PNN, that the Israeli army would also finish, within a few months, the building of its underground concrete wall to block attacks from Gaza.
