Israeli is doing what any other (sane) country would do against Islamonazis, I say press the offensive until they (hamas and any other paleostinian) are reduced to rubble.

Gaza tunnels make Israeli ground offensive dangerous but necessary
Israel’s bombing campaign in Gaza is targeting Hamas military installations, but it is also targeting farms or bare land and even greenhouses. The reason is that the Palestinian militias have learned important lessons in previous wars with Israel and have set up sophisticated defenses in the form of an extensive network of tunnels, some as much as 30 meters deep.
Over time, Hamas’s engineers and diggers — known by Israel as “spiders” — gained a great deal of expertise in setting up “underground cities,” with bunkers and fortifications, all hooked up to electricity and oxygen. These tunnels can hide thousands of missiles and missile launchers from Israeli spy planes, but that’s only one of their purposes.
If Israel wants to achieve its stated goal of getting rid once and for all of Gaza’s rocket launching system, it’s going to need a ground invasion to clean out all the tunnels and bunkers.
But then the web of tunnels takes on the even deadlier purpose of trapping Israeli soldiers entering Gaza, according to a Hamas leaflet:
The Qassam Brigades’ strong point is if Israel decides to launch a round offensive, it would transform its soldiers from hunters to hunted, sitting ducks caught in a crossfire, as a result of the careful planning, preparations, surveillance, identification of the enemy’s weak points and use of the element of surprise to confound the Israelis and decimate them in gun battles with fighters who would prove their superior fighting ability.
These tunnels, dug under every street and alley in Gaza, constitute strength to be exploited by the brigades to exacerbate the Israeli military’s confusion and create security concerns that the army will be unable to deal with. This will lead to a fundamental problem that compels it to modify its rules of engagement with Hamas.
