Israel Hayom | Hamas warns: New Gaza barrier is ‘a declaration of war’

Hamas on Thursday warned that the new underground barrier Israel is building on its border with the Gaza Strip is “a declaration of war” and it will not allow the barrier to be completed.

The IDF is building the 60-kilometer (37-mile) barrier, which includes underground and underwater sections, to counter the threat from Hamas’ grid of terror tunnels.

GOC Southern Command Maj. Gen. Eyal Zamir told reporters on Wednesday that work on the barrier is progressing and will continue even if Hamas renews hostilities with Israel.
