Major media outlets such as Reuters and the New York Times reported extensively on the IDF spokesman’s revelation regarding the Hamas terror tunnel, but reiterated that these were only IDF claims. They took pains to highlight statements from Hamas officials denying the use of civilian facilities like hospitals for tunnel locations, and provided additional context regarding the situation. The New York Times emphasized that the IDF’s presentation of the tunnel was an attempt to bolster its accusations against Hamas.

Reports noted that crucial evidence to support the IDF’s accusations against Hamas was missing.
