CAIRO, October 21. (ITAR-TASS). — Palestine’s ruling Hamas movement has acknowledged responsibility for the construction of an underground tunnel leading from its territory to Israel. According to Al-Aqsa radio broadcaster belonging to Hamas, its “combat brigades paved tunnel of Khan Yunis”.
A week ago, Israeli media reported that a nearly three-kilometer underground facility built under heavily guarded border between Gaza and the Jewish state was discovered. Palestinian engineers and workers managed to build a tunnel in the shaky sandy soil, strengthening it with concrete supports.
As Hamas’ military division representative Abu Ubaidah told Al-Aqsa radio, the Palestinians built a tunnel in order to kidnap Israeli servicemen and to further exchange those for Arabs convicted in Israel.
In 2011, a similar action was successfully carried out by the Islamists. Israel agreed to free 1400 Palestinian convicts for its soldier Gilad Shalit that was detained in Gaza for several years.
In response to the construction of the tunnel after its discovery the Israeli government re-imposed a ban on the supply of construction materials into Gaza, lifted earlier at the call of the international humanitarian organizations.
