Exactly what benefits are the Palestinian noncombatants gaining from Hamas' tunnels? Disgracefully, the Israeli counter-offensive was inevitable and in effect genocidal, so how good for the "population" was it for Hamas to provoke it?
No doubt, many Gazans are asking themselves this question. Hamas rejects a ceasefire, since when the dust settles the Gazan will recognize how terribly they have been served by Hamas.
And while we're at it, what good has world opinion done the Gazans? If the empathy is genuine then how about treat Gaza lke an earthquake-devastate city cut off from relief by land and airdrop relief supplies ASAP. See: https://aaron-tovish.medium.com/stop-and-drop-now-e6c8c4d2706b
