FWIW, my dad did some work on benign smoke generators for use in tunnels in Vietnam. The concept worked, but was rejected because it was viewed as chemical weapons adjacent.
Not a problem for the IDF. The IDF and the Likud party leaders believe they do not need follow any protocols of war.
I do not understand why my post was flagged. It was not insult and people on this board. My statements are heard in the world press and the UN every day. Maybe MOSSAD has invaded Motely Fool to expunge all criticism of IDF and Likud.
Any rules about using that foam-in-a-can I put in a window cavity once? That stuff never stopped expanding. I thought I was going to have to call the fire department.
Probably make a good movie, now that I think about it. “The Foam That Ate Goofy’s Neighborhood”, starring Freddie Kruger.
You want to use water. It has been proven previously effective.
The engineering is straightforward. Egypt flooded thirty-seven cross-border tunnels in southern Gaza back in 2015 in what stands as a practical proof of concept in this location. Seawater from the Mediterranean would be pumped directly into the tunnel openings through short pipelines. While there’s little hydrological head, there is also little topographical relief to deal with in laying the pipe. Large volumes of water are pumped long distances every day, and Israeli water technology is world class.
Probably would need to use freshwater though. Egypt can get away with poisoning the ground but of course Israel would be accused of war crimes if they did the same thing.
At the same time, over five years ago “Ninety five percent of the water extracted from the coastal aquifer is now considered unfit for human consumption.”
What about pumping in carbon dioxide like they do in NY to get rid of rats?
Napalm? I think the objector up top gave us permission to use all available ideas. Not just abstract notions.
The desalination plant can not operate without power. For power the plant needs fossil fuel and electricity.
A far-right government minister, Amichay Eliyahu, said on Wednesday that Gazan land should be given to former Israeli soldiers who fought in Gaza — or to former Israeli settlers who lived in the enclave before Israel withdrew from it in 2005. Then, on Sunday, Mr. Eliyahu said that Israel should consider dropping a nuclear bomb on Gaza, an idea that drew condemnation from Mr. Netanyahu and other members of the government.
So more confirmation that Israel has nuclear weapons which they have not ever officially identified to the world.
True enough although, IIRC, they did have a small solar component. However, the point was that using salt water to flood the tunnels wouldn’t make the ground water less potable.
We all know desalination/ hospitals need “ power”, but also know “ fuel” will be conscripted by Hamas, at the expense of the thirsty/ hurt , to power the generators that ventilate/ light/ pump the tunnels.
Currently used seismic equipment could locate tunnels using a system of geophones and pulse generators…Current seismic technology readily available from the oil field will allow identification (and then destruction) of these tunnels. Wireless Seismic METIS (Multiphysics Exploration Technology Integrated System) uses a seismic recording channel collected by autonomous drones. These drones also drop DART (Downfall Air Receiver Technology) receivers, i.e., geophones. The DARTs are dropped by the drone and impale themselves into the ground creating a system of geophones to model the subsurface data.
