Hamas says it has captured informants who had helped Israel in the latest attacks on the Gaza Strip, which killed 19 Palestinians and injured over 70 others.
Hamas’s Interior Ministry spokesman, Ihab al-Ghussein, said that despite the help of the informants, Israeli forces for three days could hit only civilian targets, a Press TV correspondent in the Gaza Strip said on Sunday.
Except for a number of tank shells that were fired from Israel into Gaza, relative calmness prevailed in the coastal enclave.
Twelve people who were injured in the three-day Israeli attacks are still in serious condition.
Israeli security forces reportedly use informants to thwart resistance activists’ response to Israeli attacks and assassinate top activists.
Political analyst Mustafa al-Sawaf told our correspondent that the fact that the security forces can find and arrest informants and this means more difficulties for the Israelis to get additional information from Gaza.
Meanwhile, the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) in Gaza has called on UN Chief Ban Ki-moon and the Arab League to take concrete steps to put an end to the Israel’s attacks.
“The Arab League should condemn Israeli attacks in Gaza. But this has to be followed by a firm action,” PLC’s Ahmad Bahar said.
However, Israel claims its attacks are in response to the rockets fired from Gaza.
