Hebrew U Researchers Find a Different Kind of 'Tunnel'


While the IDF has been searching out and destroying terror tunnels dug by Hamas terrorists into Israel, Israeli geologists were discovering and mapping another kind of “tunnel” - a cave that has turned out to be the longest one in Israel.

The cave, in northern Israel, was discovered and mapped by the cave research section of the Geology Department of Hebrew University. The University has been sponsoring cave exploration for over 40 years and has mapped thousands of caves. It is led by Professor Amos Frumkin.
