Hamas Tries to Keep Lid on Terror Tunnel Disaster

Earlier this week, we told you that heavy storms have caused many of Hamas' rebuilt terror tunnels to collapse. Now, The Times of Israel's Avi Issacharoff reports that the terror group is not only trying to keep the incident under wraps, but at the same time is blaming Israel:

Seven people were confirmed killed and another four remain missing after the collapse, which came as heavy rains drenched the region, according to sources in Gaza.

In a bid to keep a lid on the disaster, the group, which is the de facto ruler in Gaza, prevented local media from reporting the incident, which occurred in the Al-Tuffah neighborhood in northeastern Gaza City.

Hamas accused Israel of causing the collapse by opening dams to flood Gaza with water — an annual claim made by Palestinians and flatly rejected by Israel.
