Arabic-language website awraqq.com has published two documents that it says were sent by Palestinian Authority (PA) intelligence to Israel’s intelligence organizations, and which expose the location of two tunnels that Hamas dug from Gaza into Israel.

This information is what made it possible for Israel to prevent the tunnels from being used for terror attacks, according to the website.

According to the report, one tunnel was prepared by the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, the Al-Quds Brigades, and the other by the armed wing of Hamas – the Al-Qassam Brigades.


The documents read as follows:
