Israeli military operations targeting underground tunnels in Gaza, allegedly used by Hamas, have raised serious concerns about the safety and well-being of hostages reportedly held in the vicinity.
The flooding of these tunnels has ignited a contentious debate over the potential impact on the hostages, further exacerbating tensions in the region.
Israeli forces launched the offensive in response to security concerns, aiming to disable the intricate tunnel network used by Hamas. However, the presence of hostages in the affected areas has added a layer of complexity to the situation.
Critics argue that the military operation puts the lives of hostages at risk, asserting that the flooding may cause sudden deaths.
