Beneath UNRWA’s Gaza Strip headquarters, the IDF has uncovered one of Hamas’s most significant and top secret assets: a subterranean data center used by the terror group for intelligence and communications.

The terror group built the server farm, complete with an electrical room and living quarters for the Hamas IT staff, directly below the UN agency’s complex and a nearby UNRWA school in Gaza City’s Rimal neighborhood, to ensure Israel would never strike it.

On Thursday, reporters, including The Times of Israel, were given a tour of the underground passages and data center, as well as the UNRWA headquarters above.

Stay tuned for the full story at 8 p.m.
