Getty Images reports:  Hamas in Gaza is once again prepared for a military campaign against Israel, a senior member of the IDF’s Gaza Division told officials from a Gaza border community this week.

The group “has rebuilt the tunnels, its rocket systems, intelligence collection, reconnaissance, and it is essentially prepared for war,” said the source.

The source added, however, that Hamas is not currently believed to desire a conflict with Israel and is in fact a moderating influence in the Gaza Strip.

The military source, who frequently meets with residents of Gaza border communities and Sderot, spoke at a meeting to brief local authorities about the security situation some 18 months after Operation Protective Edge.
