The Israeli military has developed a plan to use pumps to flood tunnels in the Gaza Strip, which are utilized by Hamas militants for attacks.

The plan has been discussed with U.S. officials, with mixed sentiment about its potential execution.

The IDF has identified around 800 tunnels used by Hamas and is assessing the effectiveness of using salt water to neutralize them. (Trending: Elon Musk Condemns Arrest Of Jan 6 Protester)

“U.S. officials said they didn’t know how close the Israeli government was to carrying out the plan. Israel hasn’t made a final decision to move ahead, nor has it ruled the plan out,” the Journal wrote.

“Sentiment inside the U.S. was mixed. Some U.S. officials privately expressed concern about the plan, while other officials said the U.S. supports the disabling of the tunnels and said there wasn’t necessarily any U.S. opposition to the plan.”

“We are not sure how successful pumping will be since nobody knows the details of the tunnels and the ground around them,” an Israeli source stated.

The source added, “It’s impossible to know if that will be effective because we don’t know how seawater will drain in tunnels no one has been in before.”

The pumps, currently used for desalination, could potentially flood the entire network within weeks.

The plan’s details and potential hostage negotiations remain uncertain.
