“Terror Tunnels” Still a Very Real Concern in Israel

Palestinian militants have been digging tunnels through Gaza and into Israel for many years. While many of these tunnels have already been discovered and thwarted, there are still some tunnel discoveries happening today.

One recent discovery happened in southern Israel, where Israeli soldiers were stunned to find a Hamas tunnel stretching from Gaza toward a kibbutz in Israel. The tunnel was especially elaborate, with concrete floors, walls and ceilings. It was even fully wired for electricity and communication purposes, and was wide and tall enough for a person to run through with weapons or ride through on a motorcycle.

Israel defense investigators analyzed the tunnel and deemed it to be completely structurally safe for use, meaning the tunnel was somehow dug, poured with concrete and wired without the knowledge of the defense forces. It’s just one more example of how the region is moments away from danger at any time, and how there is still a lot of work to be done in promoting peace throughout the Middle East.

One of our goals with Curt Landry Ministries and our sister company, My Olive Tree, is to put an end to these so-called “terror tunnels” once and for all. With My Olive Tree, we plant what we call “peace groves” on top of former terror tunnel sites as a symbol of reclaiming the desert from those who would do harm to Israel.

You can help us to accomplish this goal in a couple ways:

  • Sponsor a tree. We offer the chance for anyone to sponsor a tree, either in your name or in someone else’s. This one-time donation has a lasting impact as the tree will grow and bear fruit for years to come, adding to the economic growth and stability of the region.
  • Make a direct donation. You can make a donation of any level to Curt Landry Ministries, and we will put your money toward our work in Israel to promote peace.
