Report: Israel finds tunnels under West Bank wall

June 14, 2013 10:25 A.M. (Updated: June 14, 2013 6:26 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel's army has uncovered two tunnels under the separation wall, used by Palestinians to enter Israel from the West Bank, Israeli media reported Friday.

The tunnels were found under the wall near al-Tayba village in the northern West Bank, the Hebrew-language daily Maariv reported.

Soldiers found two Palestinians trying to enter Israel through the tunnels, according to Maariv.

In the Gaza Strip, a tunnel network runs under the border with Egypt to smuggle goods into the blockaded enclave.

Israel's army and intelligence officers are concerned about the discovery of tunnels in the West Bank, Maariv reported, and fear they could not only by workers but also by militants to launch operations in Israel.

An Israeli military spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
