Another war crime committed by Hamas, reports the Times of Israel.
An Israeli elite squad searching for tunnels near Khan Younis uncovers a booby-trapped opening in a small UNRWA health clinic.
The troops send in sniffing dogs and a small robot to minimize damage to the structure, but despite the precautionary measures, the explosives rigged to the tunnel are detonated, demolishing the building on top of the soldiers.
Earlier reports indicated that a number of soldiers were injured.
The same brief post notes that Hamas has used IEDs and destroyed “thousands” of buildings in Gaza. In a sweep of 28 buildings overnight, the IDF found that 19 of them were booby trapped with bombs.
On a brighter note, the IDF believes that it’s just days away from destroying all of Hamas’ tunnels.
Instead of allowing Israel to finish the job, though, the Obama regime is ramping up its rhetoric against them.

The UN and the current US government are both unlikely to let Israel win.
