FP says "Hamas’s growing reliance" on tunnels has paid off

Tehran, IRNA – Foreign Policy magazine has stressed that Hamas’s growing reliance on the tunnels and its elaborate construction effort have paid off.

"In Gaza, as in previous underground wars, the tunnels have unsettled the (Israeli regime's) forces, caused significant casualties, delayed the end of the war, and made victory less certain," Foreign Policy reported.

"Already, it has become clear that Israel cannot possibly detect or map the entirety of Hamas’s tunnel network," it added.

"As Israel moves to destroy the underground network, troops remain under fire, and additional tunnels are discovered each day," the report noted.

"Completing this job could take a few more months. In a tunnel war requiring stamina, time, and perseverance, ending the war prematurely could mean defeat. To avoid such an outcome, Israel’s ability to determine its own timetable is key."

"Even the most specialized units of the IDF have suffered losses because of booby-trapped tunnel entrances," FP stressed.

Earlier in December 2023, the Zionist reserve officer Ishaq Brik emphasized that since there is no solution for Hamas tunnels, the claims of analysts and the Israeli army about the Gaza war should not be believed.

Contrary to the claims of the Israeli military spokesman and analysts, most of the clashes in Gaza are not face-to-face, Brik added.

The Zionist regime waged its war on Gaza on October 7, 2023, after Hamas launched an operation against the occupied territories on that day in response to the Israeli regime's decades-long campaign of bloodletting and devastation against the Palestinians.
