Israel flooding Hamas tunnels - WSJ |13 Dec 2023 | The Israeli military has begun pumping seawater into Hamas' underground tunnel network beneath Gaza, the Wall Street Journal has reported. Israeli officials have refused to comment on the alleged operation, which could endanger the lives of more than 100 hostages and contaminate the strip's water supply. Israeli forces began experimenting with flooding the tunnels after transporting powerful pumps into Gaza last month, the newspaper reported on Tuesday, citing U.S. officials. Fully flooding the hundreds of miles of tunnels and bunkers beneath Gaza is expected to take several weeks, the report claimed.
