Hamas may be leading the efforts in Gaza to build underground attack tunnels meant for murdering Israeli civilians and soldiers, but the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) has revealed it is busy building its own tunnels.

DFLP, one of the main factions in the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), published a video from Gaza showing its terrorists in a tunnel it says is meant for the next clash with Israel, reported Walla on Thursday along with the footage.

In the video armed DFLP terrorists are seen walking around and training with their weapons in the fortified tunnel, with rifles, rockets and mortars seen beside them.

One of the terrorists is heard praising "the people of the tunnels, who sacrifice their blood and bodies in the heroic battle." He declared that they "will bring the victory."

DFLP is a Communist terror group that was founded in 1969 after having split from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

The group was behind large-scale attacks in the 1970s, including a 1974 terror attack known as the Ma'alot massacre which included a two-day hostage-taking of 115 people - 105 of them children - which ended in the murder of over 25 hostages.

DFLP has been relatively quiet since, but IDF figures last February showed that the terrorist group has been recently strengthening militarily, although it remains unclear where it is drawing its strength from. In response several DFLP terrorists were arrested in Judea and Samaria.

Then last November DFLP presented pictures of its "naval commandos" in Gaza, although they did not appear to be a serious or even operational force.
