A spokesman for Hamas’ Izz al-Din al-Qassam has unveiled the terror group’s finding into a failed IDF undercover mission on November 11, saying it aimed to install devices to monitor Hamas’ communications.
In a televised statement Saturday, Hamas spokesman Abu Obaida said the 15-member undercover force infiltrated Gaza under the cover of fog, planning to install telecom equipment to wiretap Hamas’ landline communications network. He showed still images of tools, including drills and machine saws, but provided no further supporting evidence.
Hamas terror group announced last week that it has arrested 45 “collaborators” who were working with Israel, in the raids that followed a failed IDF undercover mission on November 11.
A Hamas terror group court last month sentenced to death six Gazans, including a woman, for ‘spying for Israel’.
IDF Special Forces entered into Gaza in a civilian vehicle on November 11, as a part of an undercover mission. The force was exposed and an exchange of fire erupted while an Israeli aircraft accompanied the ground forces.
At least seven Muslim terrorists, including a Hamas leader in the Khan Yunis area, were eliminated after a heavy fire exchange. All the eliminated terrorists were part of the Hamas terror group armed wing Izz ad-Din al-Qassam, whose sole mission is to murder Jews.
In an unusual move, the IDF censor called on Israelis not to share any information they have about the secret mission inside Gaza.
Access to the websites of Hamas terror group’s armed wing Izz ad-Din al-Qassam has been blocked in Israel over the past weeks.
