The Shin Bet security agency and Israel Defense Forces say some 20 members of the Hamas terror group have been arrested by Israeli troops in the Gaza Strip to be questioned in Israel.

The agency says it is collaborating with the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate’s Unit 504 and other troops to gather intelligence, carry out special operations, arrest wanted Palestinians and interrogate them.

It says the 20 Hamas members were nabbed “in the heart of the Gaza Strip.”

“The interrogations of the terror operatives will be used to obtain up-to-date intelligence from the ground and to aid with the continuation of the ground maneuver and the fighting efforts,” the Shin Bet says.
