Not if they only flood them 2-3 feet
That won't kill Hamas then.

Didnít read the article, but actually thought about this yesterday. You flood it slowly. And you hope everyone comes out when the water reaches their necks. Personally donít like it though. Itís one thing to take a chance that Hamas kills the hostages. Itís another thing to shoot and then and hope Hamas will protect them.
Also the entrance you are flooding from might be the only exit.
This would be a good idea once Hamas is eliminated, and all hostages are accounted for.

And before anyone says that Israel has a bigger obligation to the hostages. you need to remember, the IDF  are conscripts.
All countries have a bigger obligation to hostages.

This is anti West in general. Someone should be fired (possibly more than someone (who let this through??)).

Do you realize weíre talking about hundreds of miles of tunnels with endless entrances?

Might be, but weíve heard so much about how intricate this tunnel network is, hard to believe thereís no emergency exit.

This would be a good idea once Hamas is eliminated, and all hostages are accounted for.

Yeah once this is all done with, you flood it with sewage.

Just flood it enough to make them unusable. That's the guy's plan anyway. Who knows

Yes. And thereís endless water in the Mediterranean. Obviously you canít pinpoint the exact depth the water will reach, so itís risky, hence my apprehension. But I believe itís possible. The beauty of water here is that current and gravity will propel it through any obstacles or booby traps. So assuming the tunnels are all connected, eventually they all fill up.

And destroy their supplies. Unless they have good shelving.

I quoted and was replying to someone suggesting flooding them just 2-3 feet.

Keep in mind the tunnels also have steel doors throughout that can block out water, gas, or other attempts to neutralize them.

You quoted me, mustíve been a mistake. Do we know theyíre hermetically sealed or youíre assuming?

Reports from tunnel experts suggested this is something that's engineered into such tunnels.

I think it might be possible to flood some tunnels, but "just flood the tunnels" is super simplistic thinking. I did some back of the hand math and it comes out to many months of continuous pumping, not including seepage, to flood 300 miles of tunnel.

Trey Yingst reports 'massive explosion' roughly 100 feet from his location
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/trey-yingst-reports-massive-explosion-roughly-100-feet-from-his-location/vi-AA1jl5Aw?ocid=msedgntp&pc=LCTS&cvid=38ff38869934433e8c590ad0573da969&ei=23

"Massive explosion"? I wonder what FOX would call the explosions in Gaza?

The idiot on FOX asks if the kindergarten was targeted? Someone should educate her that Hamas doesn't have the capability to target anything. They indiscriminately launch trying to kill anyone.
