1. "This Video Shows Hamas Fighters Using Tunnels To Attack A Post Inside Israel"
"Hamas's tunnel network has emerged as a major focus of Israel's ground campaign in the Gaza Strip. The tunnels extend from under populated areas to the other side of Gaza's border with Israel, and were reportedly part of plans for a major attack Hamas was planning for the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah."
This image purportedly shows a tunnel dug under Gaza. Self-supporting ogive shape and reputedly a lot of concrete used in the construction. Appear to be high enough for a man to walk through in an almost erect posture. Also having electricity, lighting and who knows what else. Some suggest that these tunnels dug by child labor. My original thought that imported professional miners might have worked on the digging. Who knows?
