Watch: Ancient escape tunnels discovered in Jerusalem

Hidden escape ways dug by Jews during Roman times revealed beneath City of David

Jerusalem, Tisha B'Av, 70 AD. Roman legions swarm across the city and head for the Temple. Jewish rebels, determined to fight seek refuge, albeit temporary, in underground tunnels, dug beneath the City of David.


Some 2,000 years later, Israel's Antiquities Authority finished its excavation of the site, which will soon be open to visitors. Ynet was given a fascinating sneak peek at the historical site.
