Hamas Hoards ‘Rich Trove’ of Aid But Biden Pledges to Send More

'Hamas has hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel...'

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) Despite growing concerns that Palestinians ran out of humanitarian aid, Hamas, the terrorist group that Gazans elected to run the Gaza Strip, sits on what a report described as a “rich trove” of supplies.

The report, issued by the New York Times, alleged that Hamas spent years stockpiling supplies, which include fuel, medicine, and weaponry. The exact location of that aid is hiding within its miles of tunnels.

“Hamas has hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel for vehicles and rockets; caches of ammunition, explosives and materials to make more; and stockpiles of food, water and medicine,” the report revealed. 

“A senior Lebanese official said Hamas, which is estimated to number between 35,000 and 40,000, had enough stocked away to keep fighting for three to four months without resupply,” it added. 

The revelation came after President Joe Biden compelled Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to allow $100 million worth of humanitarian aid to Gaza, citing concerns that civilians are running out of supplies to service.

“I made it clear from the outset of this crisis […] that humanitarian assistance was a critical and urgent need that had to get moving, and I express my deep personal appreciation for the leadership of President Al-Sisi of Egypt, Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel, and the United Nations to allow the resumption of this assistance,” Biden said in a statement on Oct. 21.

The announcement came after Biden visited Israel and days after Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced a “complete” blockade against the Hamas-governed Gaza. “I ordered a full siege on the Gaza Strip. No power, no food, no gas; everything is closed. We are fighting human animals, and we act accordingly,” he said.

Following the arrival of the aid, Hamas began releasing hostages. So far, the terror group has agreed to release four individuals, including two U.S. citizens.
