CBN News Inside Hamas Terror Tunnels

Visiting the labyrinth of tunnels beneath Khan Yunis, Gaza, where hostages have been held and Hamas Leader Yahya Sinwar may have hidden. Plus, the growing threat of terror cells in the US and rebuilding Israel’s agriculture sector with Israeli technology.

Hamas, the militant group controlling the Gaza Strip, has long been known for its aggressive tactics against Israel.

 Among its arsenal of weapons and strategies, the use of underground tunnels has been a particularly ominous feature of its operations. These tunnels, ostensibly built for smuggling goods and circumventing Israeli blockades, have also been employed for more nefarious purposes, including the abduction and imprisonment of hostages.

Since the conflict began a week after October 7th, 2023, Hamas operatives have utilised these tunnels to ambush Israeli soldiers, civilians, and even aid workers, dragging them into the dark labyrinth beneath the surface. Once inside, victims are subjected to harrowing conditions, often held for ransom or used as bargaining chips in negotiations with Israel. The hostages endure days, weeks, or even months of confinement, cut off from the outside world, and subjected to psychological torment.

The discovery of these tunnels has sparked international outrage, with human rights organisations condemning Hamas for its flagrant disregard for basic humanitarian principles. Efforts to dismantle the tunnel network have been met with resistance, as Hamas continues to prioritise its militant agenda over the well-being of innocent civilians caught in the crossfire.

The Hamas tunnels serve as a stark reminder of the lengths to which extremist groups will go to achieve their objectives, sacrificing lives and perpetuating fear in pursuit of their cause. As the cycle of violence persists in the region, the plight of those ensnared in the darkness beneath Gaza’s streets serves as a sobering testament to the ongoing struggle for peace and justice in the Middle East.
