Hamas denied yesterday (Monday) publications within the Israeli media which argued that the terrorist organization is trying to restore its terror structure and is continuing to dig terror tunnels underneath civilian sites within the Gaza Strip. Hamas claimed that the IDF’s motives to publish the images are simply another way to justify Israel’s blockade on Gaza and its preparations on the ground towards another possible operation against Gaza residents.
As reported last week by JOL, IDF Southern Command head Eyal Zamir revealed the satellite imagery and suggested that Hamas is trying to restore its terror infrastructure, which has been destroyed by the IDF over the past few years. Zamir argued that the terrorist organization is restoring the infrastructure within civilian buildings.
“Israel is making a continuous intelligence effort to expose the military infrastructure of Hamas ever since Operation Protective Edge,” Zamir explained. “This led to the significant intelligence uncovering of the organization’s military assets. Most of Hamas’ military facilities are located inside civilian structures- civilian homes, schools and mosques. Inside the buildings, there are headquarters, weapons arsenals and rocket launchers.”
