Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Advanced robots take part in the battle in the Gaza Strip. Israeli military forces reportedly use it to detect underground movements.
They use killer drones and robot bloodhounds. The robot dogs are named Oketz and Samur which have been trained to track in a 500 kilometer long tunnel.
Defense analysts say Israel uses ground-penetrating radar as well as gravity detectors. This was done so they could map the system beneath the tunnel.
However, entering the tunnel built by Hamas was not easy. Israel is trying to equip its robots so they can find the various traps used.
The prepared robot dog has a number of capabilities. Starting from detecting bombs and explosives, finding entry ways, and attacking by biting the hands of enemy personnel.
The tunnel is one of Israel’s focuses. This is because its destruction is crucial for the counterattack against Hamas which attacked Israel on October 7 2023.
The Rand Corporation revealed that Hamas employed 900 people to build the tunnel system. The organization even sent a team of engineers to study in Iran.
In Iran, the team learned various things in the tunnels. Namely related to electricity, ventilation and water supplies.
The 70 meter deep tunnel was built over almost a decade. There, it was reported that various weapons and food reserves were stored.
The conflict between Hamas and Israel has been going on for more than a month. The attack on October 7 reportedly killed 1,200 Israelis, while in Palestine more than 12,000 people were killed.
