Israel considers flooding Gaza tunnels

Israel is considering an unconventional plan to address the issue of Hamas's underground tunnels in Gaza, The Wall Street Journal reported. The Israeli Defense Forces reportedly strategically placed large seawater pumps near the Al-Shati refugee camp, intending to flood the extensive tunnel network with seawater.

The deployment of at least five pumps capable of drawing water from the Mediterranean Sea could flood the tunnels within weeks, according to the report. This approach aims to force Hamas fighters out of their subterranean hideouts. However, the tactic reportedly raised concerns about potential repercussions on Gaza's freshwater supply and overall infrastructure.
