IDF confirms Hamas planned massive tunnel attack

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 | Tag Cloud

JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- IDF officials confirmed Tuesday that Hamas had planned to carry out a massive assault by penetrating Israeli communities via tunnels under the border from the Gaza Strip, and then killing or kidnapping as many people as possible, the Times of Israel reported.

IDF Spokesperson Peter Lerner said the terror group planned to use the tunnels to attack civilian areas in Israel and “inflict mass casualties,” in a report published Tuesday by Vanity Fair.

“Hamas had a plan,” Lerner said. “A simultaneous, coordinated, surprise attack within Israel.”

The assault was based on using tunnels, dug under the border by Hamas, as a means of entry into Israel.

"They planned to send 200 terrorists armed to the teeth toward civilian populations," Lerner said. "This was going to be a coordinated attack. The concept of operations involved 14 offensive tunnels into Israel. With at least 10 men in each tunnel, they would infiltrate and inflict mass casualties." -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.timesofisrael.com/idf-confirms-hamas-planned-massive-tunnel-attack/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
