VIDEO: Hezbollah terrorists sent scrambling when Israel floods attack tunnels with concrete slurry

VIDEO: Hezbollah terrorists sent scrambling when Israel floods attack tunnels with concrete slurry

Like a scene from the 1950s movie The Blob, Hezbollah terrorists run from the mass of liquid concrete emerging from tunnel entrances in Lebanese civilian areas.

As part of the continuing battle to neutralize Hezbollah attack tunnels dug from southern Lebanon into northern Israel, the Israel Defense Forces has release a lot of interesting graphics, images and video.

Perhaps my favorite was That moment a Hezbollah terrorist comes face-to-face with an IDF camera in an attack tunnel:

Israel also has released images of two of the tunnels being blown up:

Here is our full list of Operation Northern Shield posts so far:

Video of tunnels being blown up is dramatic, but it destroys the evidence of the location of the source of the tunnel on the Lebanese side of the border.

So Israel came up with a solution. It began to pump large volumes of concrete slurry into the tunnels, and then waited to see where it came out on the other side.

Ynet News reports on the results:

The IDF flooded with cement and water the Hezbollah tunnels, which appear to have been dug from residential houses in Lebanese villages, as the Shi’ite terror group scrambles to salvage what’s left of their strategic assets.

The tunnels near the northern city of Metula were deliberately filled with large quantities of water and construction substances such as cement and bentonite, in order to not only eliminate the possibility of them being at least partially saved by Hezbollah, but to also cause flooding and expose the Lebanese villages from which the constructions originate….

After the tunnels were flooded, it became clear that tunnels excavated from the village of Kila—only two kilometres from Metula—had several openings which seemed to have been dug from inside residential homes.

The IDF Spokesperson Ronen Manelis warned Hezbollah that the IDF could fill the tunnels with substances much more hazardous than cement or water.

“We’ve warned the residents on the Lebanese side of the border that they endanger their lives by allowing for these tunnels to be dug from their homes.”

BUT WAIT, there’s also video, The Jerusalem Post adds:

Twenty-three days after Israel launched Operation Northern Shield and uncovered the first tunnel dug by Hezbollah into northern Israel from southern Lebanon, the IDF has completed the destruction of a number of tunnels which infiltrated close to the community of Metulla.

According to IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis, the military destroyed the tunnels by filling them with material which would prevent the Shi’ite terrorist group from using them.

The material, he said, has come out of the tunnel in several places in the southern Lebanese village of Kfar Kila where the tunnel was dug from, including in a residential building next to the border fence which was used to make bricks.

“This fact indicates Hezbollah’s use of civilian structures in the heart of an urban area in southern Lebanon, in flagrant violation of Resolution 1701 and endangering its citizens by using them as human shields,” the military said in a statement.

“It is clear that this factory belongs to Hezbollah and was used to build tunnels,” Manelis said, adding that there were other locations in Kfar Kila which were connected to tunnels and therefore the IDF saw material come out in several locations, including into residential homes.

“Whoever decides to live above a terror tunnel endangers his life, just like someone who decides to live above a weapons storehouse,” Manelis said.

This video shows the concrete slurry and the reaction from Hezbollah terrorists, who scramble to avoid the liquid like a scene from the 1950’s movie The Blob:

The terrorists then attempt to scoop up the slurry with machinery, but to no avail.

In case you missed it, the IDF also posted the videos on Twitter:

For those who don’t get The Blob reference, here’s the trailer:

I would like to see their reaction if a huge number of rats, snakes, or spiders were released into the tunnel before the concrete. Have a little fun with it.

Unfortunately the concrete will only be a temporary setback. Like ants the palestinians will labor tirelessly to re-open the attack tunnels. If only they would work so hard to make a better life for themselves.

And I thought clearing my driveway of snow was difficult.

“Akmed, you wonderful husband! I love my new kitchen floor!”

Top it off with a nice hydrofluoric acid solution rinse to boot.

Phosgene, ammonia, etc. I would turn these tunnels into toxic sewers. They are already filled with POS so all that is needed is the toxic part.

    “Imagine the worst, most foul thing you have ever smelled. An overpowering mix of rotting meat, old socks that haven’t been washed for weeks – topped off with the pungent waft of an open sewer. . .Imagine being covered in the stuff as it is liberally sprayed from a water cannon. Then imagine not being able to get rid of the stench for at least three days, no matter how often you try to scrub yourself clean.”

Pigs blood and pig feces would work wonders.

    Yep, pump raw sewage into the tunnels and keep on doing so for months. In some cases I strongly prefer recycling. The only cement used should be for a plug with just one opening to connect the pump’s outlet.

The Israelis are far more humane and kind than I would be in this situation. I’d fill the tunnels –rapidly, so as not to warn them — with fuel-air explosive and light it off. The resulting earth-shattering kaboom might just convince a small proportion of the south Lebanese population to stop lending their homes out to Hezbollah.

    Not enough air available, so the explosive needs to be one which contains its own oxidizer. Diesel and anhydrous ammonia should do the trick.

It is not possible to not love and admire the Israelis! They seem to find the right answer to so many problems that if they occurred here the left would defend the terrorist’s actions and blame America for inhumane trestment.

If you’re just wanting to find the other end of the tunnel, use firefighting foam and a colorant. A giant pile of pink bubbles foaming up on the Leb. side of the border should be fairly obvious. Lace it with UV stain and you can ID anybody who tries to clear it. Follow it with cyanoacrylate foam and you’ve got something that solidifies up for a heck of a lot cheaper than concrete.

Then again, propane and O2 have a certain appeal once you look at what these people do when they finish a tunnel.

Wonder where they found a front end loader so quick?

    What?? You don’t have a Bobcat(TM) in your barn?? Or a Nortrac?

    It was a tunnel digging operation after all, so there is most likely a lot of equipment around. I bet that truck of dirt dumped to keep the concrete off the road was once somewhere down in what is (or was) the tunnel.

It’s a shame that it wasn’t explosive concrete…..

Nobody poked it with a stick? Disappointed :/

Poison gas first. Slurry second.
