Prepare for Another War with Hamas – Alex Fishman (Ynet News)
According to senior Israeli defense officials, Hamas feels that it has reached a sufficient level of preparedness to get through another war against Israel, a year and a half after the last confrontation in summer 2014.
The warning signs have been clear to Israel for several months: Israel believes Hamas has completed basic preparations for delivering a surprise attack that will penetrate into Israel simultaneously via a number of points from the air, sea and tunnels, accompanied by mortar fire and a massive blitz of rockets.
Booby-trapped tunnels penetrating inside Israel have apparently been newly dug, including several openings for each tunnel.
Hamas special forces and divers continue their intensive training, their UAV strength was rebuilt, and their rocket arsenal has been partially restocked.
Hamas has instructed its people in the West Bank to once again carry out terrorist attacks inside the Green Line.
Money has begun pouring into those terror cells as Hamas – led by Mohammed Deif – is changing direction and raising the stakes against Israel.
