Hamas arrests ‘Israeli agents’

Hamas’s internal security forces arrest a group of “Israeli agents” as part of an ongoing operation to root out people working with the Jewish state, media close to Hamas’s military reports.

“Hamas internal security forces are currently undertaking a large campaign to pursue Israeli agents, during which a group has been arrested and others are being pursued,” the Palestinian news site al-Majd, known as close with the Izz-a-Din al-Qassam Brigades, writes.

The campaign follows a declaration by Hamas that it would crack down on “collaborators” with Israel after the recent assassination of one of its military leaders, Mazen Fuqha, which it blames on Israel.
