Hamas Shows Off Tunnel-Digging Unit – Jack Khoury (Ha’aretz)
Hamas revealed toAl-Jazeera on Saturdaya unit that specializes in digging offensive tunnels.
The report showed Hamas operatives digging a tunnel and preparing infrastructure for launching rockets from below ground. The excavators line the tunnel with concrete slabs to prevent the tunnel’s collapse.
Digging is done at a slow pace so that the sand may be removed and scattered elsewhere without attracting attention.
