ISIS terrorists getting medical treatment in Gaza
Hamas has been treating ISIS terrorists from Sinai in Gaza hospitals in exchange for money and weapons, Israel’s Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories chief Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai tells the Saudi website Elaph.
The ISIS terrorists enter Gaza through tunnels from Egypt and receive medical treatment in Hamas-run hospitals, Mordechai tells the Saudi site.
In exchange, the ISIS-affiliate gives Hamas guns and money, he says.
There are a number of Salafist groups in Gaza claiming ties to ISIS, some of whom have been trying to wrest some control of the Strip from Hamas, which is the de facto ruler of the Palestinian enclave.
Egypt, locked in a battle with ISIS-linked terrorists in Sinai, has recently upped efforts to clamp down on smuggling between Gaza and Sinai, flooding a network of smuggling-terror tunnels and building a moat the length of the border.
