Israel ‘s counter-offensive against the rockets and the tunnels has yielded unexpected and horrific intel.
The US and the EU should investigate why they have facilitated the delivery of the materials (ie cement) for tunnel infrastructure in Gaza despite Israel’s repeated, vocal concerns.
2013: Israeli intelligence had warned: Cement to Gaza can be lethal
On June, 2010, Israeli intelligence issued a warning, that “Hamas uses cement for military needs”, especially in the construction of munitions supply tunnels.
orders to provide massive cement supplies for the construction of seventy five UNRWA school buildings in Gaza.
Our agency asked sources in Israeli intelligence at the time if there had been any change in their assessment that Hamas would indeed use cement for lethal purposes.
The answer from Israeli intelligence was that there had been no change in that assessment.
One entity did praised the constrction of the tunnels: UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency.
UNRWA – the UN agency who’s schools have been stockpiling Hamas weapons. UNRWA – the UN agency whose schools that have been teaching, advancing and promoting the Jihad against the Jews. The UN – arm of the global jihad.
One of the captured Hamas terrorists that was questioned a couple of days ago days ago apparently told the IDF that Hamas had a grand plan to attack Israeli civilians on the perimeter of Gaza via the underground tunnels. Their D-day was supposed to be our high holiday of Rosh Hashana – the New Year, Sept 24, 2014.
The plan was for hundreds of Hamas jihadists to access Israel via the terror tunnels to wage a simultaneous attack and slaughter as innocent civilians as possible from those tunnels. Machine gun down as many innocent civilians as they could, and then to take a large number hostage and hold them in the underground tunnels as human shields against Israeli retaliation. All the while, they would launch a massive rocket attack on as many points in Israel as possible.

IDF Excavation of the tunnels has resulted in the seizure of tons of Hamas supplies as well as the discovery of plans for future operations.
Hamas had apparently been preparing a murderous assault on Israeli civilian targets for the coming Jewish New Year Holiday, Rosh Hashanah, which begins on September 24, according anonymous sources in the Israeli security services, as reported today by the Israeli daily Maariv.
The Hamas plan consisted of what was to be a surprise attack in which 200 fighters would be dispatched through each of dozens of tunnels dug by Hamas under the border from Gaza to Israel, and seize kibbutzim and other communities while killing and kidnapping Israeli civilians.
Israeli soldiers already frustrated a surprise assault by Hamas through one tunnel from Gaza into the Eshkol district of Israel on July 19. The Hamas fighters escaped back into the tunnel, but the clash cost the lives of two Israel Defense Force [IDF] troops.

Israel has reportedly discovered at least 30 tunnels, and has destroyed several of them by employing bulldozers. IDF excavation of the tunnels has resulted in the seizure of tons of Hamas supplies, as well as the discovery of plans for future operations. Clearly, the network of tunnels — using hundreds of tons of concrete that might otherwise have been used by the Palestinians for building homes, shopping malls, parks, schools, hospitals and libraries — indicates that Hamas had been preparing for an ongoing conflict for at least a year. According to the reports, each tunnel has arteries, veins, offshoots, and offshoots of the offshoots in intricate and complex arrangements. As one Israeli spokesman said, “There are two Gazas, one above ground and one below ground: an underground terrorist city.”
