The tunnel, which the military said was 700 meters long and 18 meters deep, split in two in two areas, forming side chambers.

Hamas has a command tunnel under the UN headquarters in the Gaza Strip (UNRWA), Reuters reports.

Army engineers led foreign journalists through tunnels at UNRWA. The headquarters of UNRWA is located in Gaza City.

The reporters entered a shaft next to a school around the UN compound and descended through a concrete-lined tunnel. According to the Army Lieutenant Colonel leading the tour, twenty minutes of walking in the sweltering heat and a narrow and sometimes winding path brought them to the UNRWA headquarters.

The tunnel, which the military said was 700 meters long and 18 meters deep, split in two in two areas, forming side chambers. There is an office space with steel safes and a tiled toilet. One large room is filled with computer servers, the other with industrial batteries.

According to the Israeli military, electricity in the tunnel is supplied directly from the UN headquarters.

The IDF believes it is one of the central command posts for Hamas intelligence, from where they have led much of the fighting.

Hamas evacuated and cut communication cables running through the basement floor of the UNRWA headquarters.

In a statement, UNRWA said it left its headquarters on October 12, five days after the war began, and therefore “cannot confirm or otherwise comment” on the Israeli search.

The UN launched an internal investigation and several donor countries froze funding following Israeli accusations last month that some of its staff were Hamas operatives.

Palestinians have accused Israel of falsifying information to discredit UNRWA, which employs 13,000 people in the Gaza Strip and has been a lifeline for aid-dependent populations for years. The agency runs schools, primary care clinics and other social services and distributes aid, describing its activities as strictly humanitarian.

We remind you that the IDF is preparing a massive operation in the city where there are 1.3 million refugees.
