On Monday, CNN reporter Wolf Blitzer got a look inside one of the infamous tunnels built by Hamas to smuggle goods, weapons, and people from Gaza to Israel. The tunnel had been recently captured by Israeli forces.
The Israeli army says destroying Hamas’ complex, and deadly, tunnel network is a main aim of Operation Defensive Edge, launched on July 8. The army has since expanded its campaign.
