The Algemeiner reports: – Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israeli television that the Jewish state has developed cutting-edge counter-tunnel technology that will enable it to destroy all Hamas terror tunnels by the end of 2018.

Lieberman’s remarks followed last weekend’s detection and destruction of a Hamas terror tunnel running under the Egypt, Gaza and Israel borders. It was the third terror tunnel the IDF has destroyed in recent months.

“By the end of 2018, we will have eliminated all of Hamas’s attack tunnels. We may even manage to do so sooner, but the task is to destroy them all by the end of the year,” Lieberman said. Despite Hamas’s continuous efforts to build tunnels, Lieberman assessed that the terrorist group will opt to exercise restraint rather than provoke a security escalation.
