As the IDF continues the ground operation in Gaza, more terror tunnels are being discovered—and the IDF balances fighting both above and underground. Just under southern Gaza City, IDF soldiers have uncovered a terror tunnel where Israeli hostages were held by Hamas, reports JNS:

“The tunnel was connected to an extensive underground tunnel network beneath a civilian area in the city. Millions of shekels are estimated to have been invested in excavating the tunnel and equipping it with air ventilation systems, electrical supply and plumbing. After investigating the tunnel, it can be confirmed that Israeli hostages had been inside the tunnel,” the IDF said on Thursday morning…

More than 300 tunnel shafts have been located in Khan Yunis since the start of the IDF’s ground operation on Oct. 27, some of which lead to significant tunnels, tactical shafts, weapons storage facilities and combat areas, according to the army.
