Revealed: Hamas diverting electricity in Gaza Strip to build terror tunnels

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent

The Saudi on-line magazine, Al Arabiya, published a story this week about Palestinian sources revealing that some 30% of the electricity provided to the Gaza Strip is consumed by Hamas in their tunnel building endeavours.

The advanced tunnel networks that Hamas builds are used for terrorist attacks against Israel.

Perhaps this helps explain why Gaza has long suffered from an unsteady supply of electricity although the Hamas training sites seem to be unaffected by blackouts.

With Hamas spending hundreds of millions of dollars to construct its terror tunnels and terror capabilities, the average citizens of the Gaza Strip, continue to suffer.

When they find a tunnel, they should fill it with gas and O2, then ignite it. I wonder how many “hospitals” and “community centers” would have their roofs blown off?

Israel should never have given them the Gaza strip, because now they are going to have to take it back.

I trust that Israelis places the explosive charges and listening devices, in to the tunnels and then waits until they are being worked on, before activating the explosives
Way to go Israel. You are the only Nation in the world with any common sense.

This has been going on for years. Israel needs to retake Gaza and the rest of West Bank before it is too late.
Hamas has stole aid for years meant for the people of Gaza . Time to crush Hamas.
