Some Of Hamas' Terror Tunnel Entrances Are Under Mosques

Israeli security forces stopped two terrorists smuggling thousands of dollars worth of Euros in their shoes to support the activities of Hamas, according to Israel National News (Arutz Sheva). Shin Bet launched an investigation, which led to information about the entrances to various terror tunnels used by the terrorist organization, some of which are in mosques:

Two terrorists from the Gaza Strip have been arrested for smuggling cash earmarked for Hamas activities in Judea and Samaria - in their shoes.

The two are Faiz Attar (65) of Beit Lahia, and Itallah Sarhan of Jabalia. Both towns are in the Gaza Strip

Attar was arrested last week after it was discovered that he was using his transit permit - issued for work purposes - to act as a courier for cash to fund the terrorism activities of Hamas in Judea and Samaria. The money was hidden in specially designed shoes. He was able to complete the transfer several times, with the total sum of money smuggled amounting to tens of thousands of Euros.

A Shin Bet investigation found that Attar's family has ties with Hamas, taking part in operations against IDF forces and digging of terror tunnels. Attar's sons have also hosted Hamas meetings in his house.

The investigation also turned up information regarding tunnel entrances - some of which are located under residential buildings, housing many innocent civilians who have no ties to terror groups, and mosques - and missile launch pads located near residential buildings, endangering the civilian population.

The second terrorist, Sarhan, was arrested last month at the Erez crossing while trying to smuggle 10,000 Euro in his shoes for Hamas in Judea and Samaria.

That’s some scary stuff, though activities that Israelis are used to dealing with on a constant basis. Nevertheless, it’s a reminder that we must always remain vigilant when combating radical Islamic terrorism.
