Israel begins pumping seawater into Hamas tunnels: Wall Street Journal

Israel’s military has begun pumping seawater into Hamas’s tunnels in Gaza, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing US officials briefed on the Israeli military’s operations.

A spokesperson for the Israeli defence minister declined to respond to the newspaper's request for comment.

Critics have warned that flooding the tunnels could hurt Gaza’s freshwater supply.
