The IDF and Shin Bet security agency reveal never-before-seen footage showing senior Hamas commanders inside the terror group’s tunnels in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

An image released by the IDF and Shin Bet shows the senior command of Hamas’s northern Gaza brigade sitting in a narrow room around a table of food, which it says was taken several months ago. Though decorated with tile floors and wall outlets, an arch in the back can be seen indicating that the room is part of Hamas’s vast underground network.

According to the IDF, five of those in the picture were killed in Israeli airstrikes since the war began, including Wael Rajab, the deputy commander of Hamas’s northern Gaza brigade.

Another video released shows Rajab walking through a tunnel in the Strip.

The IDF says the footage was obtained from findings seized in the Gaza Strip by troops and analyzed by the Military Intelligence Directorate.
