@ExGingi  From what I can tell this is simply incorrect. Ron B. wasn’t mentioned by Daniel Hagari nor was it reported anywhere else.

Land bridge between Indian ocean and Mediterranean. Has been mentioned many times. IIRC I even posted an article about it (possibly in the "peace in the middle east" thread. I'm sure @TimT can find mentions of this.

Nearly 700 tunnel shafts have been identified in Rafah, from which approximately 50 tunnels cross into Egypt. These tunnels are used by Hamas to supply itself with weapons and ammunition and could potentially be used to smuggle out of Gaza hostages, or Hamas senior operators,” Noam told the court.

Seems like there is a typo here. Other reports are of 70 tunnels, with 50 going into Egypt.

Personal theory: the reason Israel started in the north is because they knew these tunnels were there. Had they uncovered them in the beginning, there would have been much more scrutiny on Egypt's role, and Egypt and other Arab countries would have ended up being much less cooperative (than they already were).

That was obviously a very big risk

Quote
Because the world said to Israel at the beginning of the ground invasion, that what you’re doing, I don’t care if it’s legal or not, cannot continue. You got to find another way. The United States with its influence said, look, I know what you’re doing is achieving results, but you have to find a different way.

So the IDF shifted their tactics, they reduced the number of forces, they reduced the number of strikes on military targets, and they went more methodically and slowed down. They did more tactical pauses, they avoided more areas if they had any civilian population in them, and it became a very house-to-house, block-by-block, tunnel-by-tunnel fight, which has prolonged the war.

That has increased the humanitarian suffering and the strain on humanitarian supplies in Gaza. It has increased the duration of the violence and the continued existence of Hamas. So we are at fault for some of the destruction in Gaza because of that. We own some of the responsibility.
