Hamas Executed Dozens of Terror Tunnel Excavators

Hamas executed the Gazan tunnel excavators so they couldn't pass any information on the terror tunnels to Israel.

Over the past few weeks, Hamas executed dozens of tunnel excavators, according to a Mako report.

A source in Gaza, familiar with the tunnel industry, told Mako that Hamas suspected these tunnel diggers had information on the location on the tunnels, including their entrances and exits. Hamas was afraid the diggers could have passed the information on these tunnel to Israel.

The source said that most of the workers who dug the tunnels did not know their actual locations.

Truckloads of blindfolded workers were brought inside buildings, and searched to make sure they had no phones, cameras or GPS devices on them. They were not allowed outside as they dug the tunnels, so they would not know their exact location.

The Hamas terrorists were always masked so the workers couldn’t identify them.

The workers were paid between $150 to $300 a month for 8 to 12 hour shifts. The workers employed were the professional (smuggling) tunnel diggers from the Rafah and Khan Younis areas.

At the end of the tunnels construction, Hamas murdered dozens of the tunnel diggers they suspected as collaborators with Israel, even if just based on rumor.

Some were murdered when it was discovered they simply had previous connections to Israeli civilians.

The Gazan source said that Hamas was “very cruel”.

A 2012 report said that at least 160 children were killed while digging out the terror tunnels for Hamas.

During Operation Protective Edge, Israel captured 300 terrorists, including dozens that were involved in digging the tunnels or part of the rocket launch crews.

  12. Moshe Hen says:

    If you are so sure that ” Palestine , the country, goes back through most of recorded history,” I expect you to be able to answer a few basic questions about that country of Palestine :

    When was it founded and by whom?
    What were its borders?
    What was its capital?
    What were its major cities?
    What constituted the basis of its economy?
    What was its form of government?
    Can you name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat?
    Was Palestine ever recognized by a country whose existence, at that time or now, leaves no room for interpretation?
    What was the language of the country of Palestine ?
    What was the prevalent religion of the country of Palestine ?
    What was the name of its currency? Choose any date in history and tell what was the approximate exchange rate of the Palestinian monetary unit against the US dollar, German mark, GB pound, Japanese yen, or Chinese yuan on that date.
    And, finally, since there is no such country today, what caused its demise and when did it occur?

  13. How cruel are these people?

  14. Jose Medina says:

    It would make sense. This was done to cover up their tails.

  15. Ina Dearing says:

    Hamas and supporters is the killer of the Palestine children and women so much more to come .

    Elianne Kraeselsky Shewring that is what I am talking about

  18. Vicki Spaan says:

    I’m constantly praying for Israel, the Jewish people, and Peace in Jerusalem.

  19. Neil Yang, this is so cruel. I know that the people who worked there had no choice as they were so poor and needed the money. I read a testimony of one of these people who helped digging the tunnels even though he did not agree with it. He said that the hamas people used to watch them work and beat them often. Also ” The workers were paid between $150 to $300 a month for 8 to 12 hour shifts. “. They were really slaves :(

  26. Uma Onishi says:

    Not surprise anymore.

  27. Elyce Benham says:

    That was popular with the Egyptians re: their tomb builders around 2500 BCE. So it sounds like Hamas culture has either de-evolved or not evolved in that area since around that time period or not examined that mind-set in 21st Century ethics. The ramifications concern me.

  28. But they were simply civilians and it was Israel’s fault …sarcasm font

  29. Chuck Dawson says:

    No, this can’t be. Muslims belong to a very peaceful religion and wouldn’t hurt a fly.
