Jimmy Carter: War Began When Israel Attacked Hamas' "Defensive Tunnels"

Defensive tunnels?

IDF forces operating in northern Gaza have quickly become familiar with the enemy's modes of operation. According to commanders and soldiers, Hamas has built an underground city of tunnels and holes paved with weapons.

Many Hamas members have dug tunnels for themselves under their homes and hid weapon caches in them.

One of the Air Force strikes in Gaza, not far from the Shifa Hospital, revealed weapons hidden in the area. Following the explosion, the bottom part of the bunker was blown away, exposing a maze of tunnels.

IDF officials said the terrorists emerge from the tunnels, hide in them, attempt to kidnap soldiers into them and place different traps in a bid to attract the soldiers. The Hamas men try to initiate close combat, face-to-face, and use different methods covering tunnels with dolls, placing explosives in schools and wearing IDF uniform.

According to Reuters, Israelis' aircraft's anti-missile flares are "weapon systems," but according to Jimmy Carter (writing in the WaPo), Hamas' weapons-and-kidnapping-tunnels are "defensive" in nature.

Don't you know that it's different for Jews?, as Joe Jackson didn't quite say.

Thanks to CJ and Dan F., respectively.
