Development of new tunnel-detection system progressing, IDF source says

Development of a new tunnel-detection system by Israel to help prevent the types of cross-border attacks experienced during last summer’s war in Gaza has progressed in recent months, a senior IDF source said Tuesday.

Israel has been seeking a system to provide it with real-time alerts on tunnel digging and underground movement, in order to thwart Hamas’s subterranean cross-border network used repeatedly during the conflict to send cells into Israel to commit deadly attacks. Thirty- two cross-border tunnels were destroyed by the IDF during the operation.
