IDF: Hamas Seizes Gazan Building Materials to Build Attack Tunnels


idf-tunnelHamas is seizing wood and other materials imported into Gaza for civilian construction projects and using it to build tunnels to attack Israel, delaying Gaza’s recovery from last year’s war, IDF Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Maj.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai told the Palestinian Ma’an News Agency this week.

“Hamas operatives have forcefully taken over storage facilities housing construction imports, and seized them for the organization’s underground infrastructure,” Mordechai said.

Israel has allowed 1.7 million tons of construction materials into Gaza since the war, he added.

Mordechai also dismissed reports that Israel was holding direct or indirect negotiations with Hamas.
