(JNS.org) Hamas's Izz a-Din al-Qassam Brigades has openly stated that it is rebuilding the terror tunnels that were destroyed by the IDF during Operation Protective Edge this summer, according to a reporter from the Gaza-based newspaper Al-Resalah, who witnessed diggers at work during a visit to a tunnel site on Sunday.

The repairs to the tunnel had started "during one of the humanitarian cease-fires reached during the war,” the commander of the digging team told the reporter.

"Hamas did not wait a single moment after the last round of fighting, and began its rearmament in anticipation of another round," a senior Israeli diplomatic source said, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
