Network of tunnels under Gaza used by Hamas to smuggle arms and terrorists. Israel Defense Forces colloquially refer to these as the “Gaza metro. Over the years, Hamas in Gaza has built a massive network of underground tunnels often used to carry out attacks in Israel and smuggle goods from Egypt. Yet mostly it is used to let Hamas carry out its operations through underground command centres which are also equipped to store and transport men and ammunition. Hamas claims to have built 500 kilometres (311 miles) worth of tunnels under Gaza, much more than Delhi Metro's coverage. Hamas has built more than 1,300 tunnels for a whopping $1.25 billion.
