A rare tour that Hamas granted to a Reuters reporter, photographer and cameraman appeared to be an attempt to dispute Israel's claim that it had demolished all of the Islamist group's border infiltration tunnels in the Gaza war.Israel said the tunnel network is used by Hamas to move and store weapons and keep fighters out of sight of Israeli aircraft.On the battlefield, Hamas met Israeli forces with an array of tactics, including the use of tunnels to launch surprise attacks.Israel says it has killed hundreds of Hamas fighters and destroyed more than 30 tunnels. In the tunnel, a Hamas fighter said the group would press on with restocking its arsenal or rockets and other weaponry and shoring up its underground network.
