Herzog asks why IDF isn’t bombing Hamas tunnels

I’ve been wondering the same thing.

The Times of Israel reports:

The Israeli army should bomb tunnels apparently being dug by Hamas terrorists into Israeli territory, the head of the political opposition said Sunday, attacking the lack of action from the government on the threat.

Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog made the comments as Israel Defense Forces officials and southern residents have raised fears that Hamas is rebuilding a series of subterranean passages, used for attacking Israel, which were destroyed during the 2014 war between Israel and Gazan fighters.

“Hamas brags, and we are idle,” Herzog told regional council heads.

The government was guilty of “zero activity” in the wake of reports that Hamas is working around the clock to build tunnels from which to attack Israelis within the country’s borders, he added, according to the Walla news site.

And please don’t tell me it’s because Netanyahu is afraid of being scolded by Obama or Kerry or the EU.
