The leader of Al-Qassam Brigades, which is a part of Hamas, publicly admitted that Hamas is rebuilding its terror tunnel network. The Gaza-based newspaper Al-Resalah was invited to send reporter Mahmoud Foda to a tunnel site on Sunday, where he was shown the diggers hard at work repairing a tunnel that had been bombed by Israeli planes during Operation Protective Edge.

The commander of the digging team, Abu-Khaled, admitted that the tunnel’s repairs were started “during one of the humanitarian ceasefires reached during the war.”

This admission shows Hamas was using ceasefires reached for humanitarian ends as part of their war strategy.

There have been previous indications that Hamas was engaged in a rebuilding effort after Protective Edge. In mid-September, Al-Qassam Brigades had announced that Ahmad Riyad al-Hadad had died while engaged in “underground activities”, without specifying what they were.

Earlier this month, Al-Qassam Brigades’ spokesperson announced at a rally “the tunnels of Al-Qassam are fine, thank God. Our men will begin the next battle with their feet on the ground in Nahal Oz….and the other settlements around Gaza.”

Seen together with the missile test launches reported over the last two months, signs point to Hamas preparing for another conflict. A senior Israeli diplomatic source, quoted in Israeli media, said “Hamas did not wait a single moment after the last round of fighting, and began its rearmament in anticipation of another round”.

What Israel’s response will be to Hamas’ aggressive drive to repair its attack capabilities remains unknown.

  1. Shemaya Shiloh. I am a Christian. You knows the ones started by Jews? Jews who think like you make it veey hard to stand by and try to love. We will do it because we love God more. But your hatred and your nasty heart makes it a burden to bear..

  2. Hopefully Israel learned a few lessons from the last round of fighting Hamas and they will be stronger and well prepared for the inevitable next round. Too bad they chose not to totally disable Hamas this summer! Woe to Israel to have such hateful (and industrious) peace partners!

  3. Really?? Gee I am so surprised. THAT , ladies and gentlemen, is why HAMAS needs to be EXTERMINATED. Kill them ALL. Take prisoner all who surrender. Then DEPORT them all to whatever flea-bag country they want to go to. Israel had their chance last summer, and blew it.

  4. Tunnels are built every day to destroy Israel the Jewish State. It is a way to eventually destroy Israel physically by gentile countries, while non-Jews build tunnels above ground like the gentiles who build them on this page as back doors by churches to undermine the Jewish people’s faith. They want to destroy the Jewish state and people too. One is a bad as the other.

  5. Shemaya Shiloh. Im a Christian. You know the ones started byJews? We are taught to always stand behind you. But Jews like you and your remarks makes it a heavy price to pay to serve our God. But we will still do it..Your hatred is so hard to bear..For you , its done strictly out of obedience to God. I could very well dislike you because of your nasty thinking heart..

  8. They will not give up until they are all dead. So much for Mollycoddling Hamas with ceasefires. In any conflict, there can be a mutual agreement to seek peace, or one side fully destroys the other. There are no other options. The mentality for fully understanding peace, and the ramifications of further aggression, simply is not there.

    Get over it, people. Blood will flow again, and soon.

  10. How does Km – UN – feel about this. God is showing the big powers something which they have to learn. Believe the words of PM Netanyahu and act what he said at the UN Assembly.
