Israel Begins Building Underground Barrier

Location: Israel Gaza border, Israel
September 8, 2016

Heavy machinery is seen on the Israeli side of the border with Gaza Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016. Israeli defense officials on Thursday said the government has begun work on a massive underground barrier along the border with Gaza meant to block Hamas militants from tunneling into Israel. The project is the hallmark of a huge effort Israel to halt the Hamas tunnels, which military officials have identified as a strategic threat. During a 2014 war, Hamas militants managed on several occasions to make their way into Israel through their tunnel network, though they did not reach nearby civilian areas.
