Hamas has reportedly made tunnels underneath Israel’s border and was planning to attack during the Jewish High Holidays. Check out it out from Allen West…
There are various reasons why tunnels are used. Here in America we mainly see them as a means of enabling transportation such as mountain tunnels for trains and cars. We also have tunnels that go under water, such as in New York for transportation. Or we even build tunnels beneath cities for mass transportation like Atlanta’s MARTA or the Metro in Washington DC. However, in times of warfare, tunnels can be used for escape prisoners — or for far more nefarious means.
Such is the case with the tunnels of Hamas. What Israel knew to be an existing problem has turned out to be sometime quite complex and dangerous – in fact, immensely dangerous. The network of Hamas tunnels now numbers more than 40 and the scheme for which they were built is truly horrific.
As reported by the Daily Caller, “Multiple media outlets report that Hamas’s offensive tunnel network – now known to have been composed of over forty attack tunnels dug underneath Israel’s border with the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip – was set to be activated during the Jewish High Holidays (September 24th) as a mass terror attack. The attack was meant to generate as many as ten thousand casualties, men, women and particularly children and hundreds of captives. Explosives were particularly placed underneath kindergartens to make certain that these “institutions” would be the first struck, even before any thing else.”
What is even more disconcerting, according to the Daily Caller, is that observers note that attack scenarios lined up with recently revealed data about the sophistication, scope and nature of the offensive tunnel network. As previously reported here, this sophistication and know-how is being copied right now by Mexico-based Hezbollah agents along the southern US border. Tunnels in Southern Lebanon, as in our border terrain, are significantly more difficult to detect than those in the sandy terrain of the Gaza Strip.
