Hamas said Monday that a "terror tunnel" extending from Gaza into Israel that the IDF uncovered was but a "drop in a sea of moves" it is preparing against Israel.

Hamas' military wing,  the Kassam Brigades, stated that "after massive criticism against the enemy's military commanders and politicians, and following long months during which they attempted to put an end to the fear prevailing in their country…the enemy announced the discovery of a tunnel east of Rafah this morning."

Disparaging the IDF, the statement specified that "during today's maneuver, the enemy attempted to imitate Kassam's operation methods."

Even though the terror tunnel was uncovered, the Kassam Brigades tried to sew panic among Israelis, stating that the IDF had not revealed all of the details about the tunnel, and Hamas would release this information "at the right time."

The statement was concluded with the Kassam Brigades' promise that more surprises for the IDF are on the way. "The preparation for war continues in all arenas, and what the enemy uncovered today is but a drop in a sea of moves the resistance has prepared in order to protect its people, free its prisoners and liberate its land."
