The Israel Defense Forces said they discovered nearly 700 tunnel shafts in Rafah, with some crossing into Egypt.

Israeli Deputy Attorney General Gilad Noam explained the findings at the International Court of Justice.

“Rafah, in particular, is a focal point for ongoing terrorist activity. It is a stronghold for Hamas’ operators with several battalions belonging to the Rafah brigades entrenched in the area,” he said, according to The Daily Wire.

“Also present in Rafah,” said Noam, “is an intricate underground tunnel infrastructure that runs underneath the city and provides ample space for operators, command and control rooms, and military equipment.”

“Nearly 700 tunnel shafts have been identified in Rafah from which approximately 50 tunnels cross into Egypt,” he added. “These tunnels are used by Hamas to supply itself with weapons and ammunition. It could potentially be used to smuggle out Gaza hostages or Hamas senior operators.”

Just The News reports that earlier this year, the IDF released a report stating that they found a tunnel network that runs partly under UNRWA’s Gaza headquarters.

The report stated that the tunnel is 700 meters long with side rooms and an office space.

Israel is reportedly preparing to carry out an invasion in Rafah as it continues its war with Hamas.

Al Jazeera reporter who held Israeli hostages in home was spokesman for Hamas-run labor ministry

Abdallah Aljamal, who wrote for Al Jazeera and worked as a spokesman for Gaza’s Hamas-run labor ministry, was killed when Israel Defense Forces troops entered his central Gaza home over the weekend and rescued hostages Almog Meir Jan, 21, Andri Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, according to Israeli officials.

Al Jazeera said Sunday that Aljamal “has never worked with the Network, but had contributed to an Op-ed in 2019,” although his profile on Al Jazeera’s website describes him a “Gaza-based reporter and photojournalist.”

The network also said allegations against Aljamal are “completely unfounded” and are “a continuation of the process of slander and misinformation aimed at harming Al Jazeera’s reputation, professionalism, and independence.”

Just The News reports this is not the first time the network has come under pressure from Israel. The Israeli government unanimously voted last month to close Al Jazeera’s offices in Israel due to security concerns.

Despite the network’s denial of a relationship with Aljamal, it is horrifically hostile towards Israel and Jews. As recent as Tuesday, the network’s English-language article featuring “Live Updates” from the Israel-Gaza war had the headline, “UN chief calls for ceasefire agreement,” with the first sentence stating: “Calling the conditions in Gaza ‘deplorable’, UN chief Antonio Guterres tells Israel and Hamas to come to an agreement on a ceasefire proposal outlined late last month by the US.”

At the same time, the Arabic-language live-updates article used the headline, “New losses for the occupation and the Palestinian factions respond to the ceasefire proposal,” with the first sentence of the article stating, as translated: “On the 249th day of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, the occupation army continued to bomb multiple areas of the Gaza Strip, while the Ministry of Health confirmed that the occupation committed 3 massacres that claimed the lives of 40 martyrs and 120 wounded in the past 24 hours.”

The term “occupation,” is used to refer to the Israel Defense Forces, while the “Israeli aggression” refers to Israel’s war against Hamas in response to the Oct. 7, 2023, terrorist attack that killed about 1,200 people and resulted in the kidnapping of about 250 others, many of whom still remain captive. Additionally, the term “martyrs” refers to any Palestinian – civilian or combatant – killed during fighting against Israel or Jews in general.
