|JERUSALEM Cheap Robin Yount Jersey , Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Palestinian Hamas organization has rebuilt most of the underground tunnels destroyed by the Israeli army in the 2014 war, the Ha'aretz daily reported on Tuesday.
According to the daily, Hamas members have resumed digging attack tunnels close to the Israeli border fence shortly after the 50-day war ended in late August 2014.
"Hamas has invested, and continues to invest, considerable efforts and finances into the tunnel project," the report stated.
The report also stated that Cheap Glenn Robinson Jersey , based on assessments by Israeli security officials, "it is reasonable to assume that the number of tunnels beneath the border at present time is close to that on the eve of Protective Edge," referring to the Israeli military code name for the war.
Israel discovered 32 tunnels during the 2014 war between Israel and Hamas, a third of which crossed into Israeli territory. Israeli officials said the military's ground campaign in the enclave, in which more than 2000 Palestinians and 70 Israeli soldiers were killed, was aimed Cheap Paul Molitor Jersey , among others, to destroy these tunnels and prevent militants from carrying out attacks against Israelis living in communities near the Gaza border, as well as end the launch of rockets towards Israeli communities.
The Israeli army announced at the end of the war it had managed to destroy all of the tunnels.
Israeli leaders said after the 2014 war that they will look into a technological solution that would enable security forces to detect tunnels being dug near the border fence, at an approximate cost of 700 million U.S. dollars, but the current defense budget does not include such an allocation, according to the daily's report.
The report suggested it is possible that the Israeli-Gaza front will be set ablaze once more Cheap Stephen Vogt Jersey , amid the ongoing wave of violence between Israel and the Palestinians across the Israeli country and the West Bank and east Jerusalem territories, which started in October and claimed the lives of 23 Israelis, one U.S. citizen and more than 140 Palestinians.
Hamas leaders had recently urged Palestinians in the West Bank to carry out suicide bombing attacks against Israelis, which were common practice of resistance in the mid-1990's and early 2000's, in the days of the second Intifada (armed uprising.)
Hamas clashed with the Fatah movement, governing the Palestinians in the West Bank Cheap Ryan Braun Jersey , in 2007 and had since took over the Gaza Strip. In the past couple of years there have been ongoing attempts to bridge the gaps between the two groups and reach reconciliation.
On a related matter, an Israeli opposition lawmaker on Monday protested that no security barrier was erected between southern Israeli communities and the Gaza Strip enclave, despite promises by the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon to do so.
Haim Yellin, a lawmaker from the center Yesh Atid party who served as head of the southern Israeli Eshkol regional council, wrote a letter to Netanyahu on the matter on Monday.
"After the war, you convened the mayors of the communities and promised not to allow Hamas to get stronger and said that within a few days we'd see bulldozers on the ground starting to build the barrier Cheap Lorenzo Cain Jersey ," Yellin wrote in the letter.
"A year and a half has passed, and terrorists can easily cross under and above ground into the communities," he added.

THE two women suspected of fatally poisoning the estranged half-brother of the North Korean leader were trained to coat their hands with toxic chemicals and then wipe them on his face, police in Malaysia said yesterday.
They announced they were seeking a North Korean diplomat in connection with the attack. But the North Korean Embassy ridiculed the police account of Kim Jong Nam’s death at a Kuala Lumpur airport, demanding the immediate release of the two “innocent women.”
If the toxins had been on their hands “then how is it possible that these female suspects could still be alive?” said a statement from North Korea’s embassy in the Malaysian capital.
Police say the women — one of them Indonesian, the other Vietnamese — washed their hands soon after poisoning Kim.
Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar told reporters yesterday that authorities were searching for two new North Korean suspects, the second secretary of North Korea’s embassy in Kuala Lumpur and an employee of North Korea’s state-owned airline, Air Koryo.
“We hope that the Korean Embassy will cooperate with us Yovani Gallardo Brewers Jersey , allow us to interview them and interview them quickly,” he said. “If not, we will compel them to come to us.”
Police say the substance used remained unknown, but it was potent enough to kill Kim before he could even make it to a hospital.
Khalid said the women knew they were handling poisonous materials and “were warned to take precautions.”
Surveillance video showed both keeping their hands away from their bodies after the attack, he said, then going to rest rooms to wash. Those details are not clear in video obtained by media outlets.
He said the women had practiced the attack at two Kuala Lumpur malls. “We strongly believe it is a planned thing and that they have been trained Jhoulys Chacin Brewers Jersey ,” he told reporters.
Khalid couldn’t confirm whether North Korea’s government was behind Kim’s death but added, “What is clear is that those involved are North Koreans.” He also said a heavily armed special police force was deployed to the morgue .
