With @LindseyGrahamSC today touring a Gaza terror tunnel. Cost of tunnel = cost of 2 new schools = cost of 30 new homes. #Hamas consistently makes the wrong choices for the people of #Gaza. Heartbreaking. pic.twitter.com/ddcrLOrP9y— David M. Friedman (@USAmbIsrael) March 10, 2019

The terrorist organization Hamas has been holding major riots on the border with Israel for months on end. Rioters throw grenades and other objects at Israeli forces and send flaming balloons into Israeli farm land, burning thousands of acres.
Meanwhile, Israel will hold elections in April. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been accused of bribery and violating the public trust. He was indicted last week by the country's attorney general and vowed to fight against the "witch hunt."
