Ha­mas of­fers $1mn re­ward for info on botched Is­raeli op

Daily Messenger - - International -

GAZA: The mil­i­tary wing of the Pales­tinian re­sis­tance move­ment Ha­mas has of­fered a re­ward of one mil­lion dol­lars for more in­for­ma­tion about a botched Is­raeli raid on the be­sieged Gaza Strip two months ago, say­ing the op­er­a­tion was aimed at plant­ing sur­veil­lance de­vices on the move­ment's land­line com­mu­ni­ca­tions net­work.

Ezze­dine alQas­sam Bri­gades shared on Sat­ur­day video footage of Is­raeli com­man­dos in ac­tion in­side Gaza as well as sev­eral pho­tos of the equip­ment they left be­hind. The failed raid on Novem­ber 11, 2018 sparked the heav­i­est fight- ing in Gaza since the 2014 Is­raeli war on the coastal sliver of land, prompt­ing the Pales­tinian re­sis­tance to fire over 400 re­tal­ia­tory rock­ets into the oc­cu­pied ter­ri­to­ries. An Egyp­tian­bro­kered cease­fire ended ten­sions on Novem­ber 13.

Speak­ing at a press con­fer­ence in Gaza, Qas­sam spokesman Abu Obeida said a 15-mem­ber elite Is­raeli mil­i­tary unit had in­fil­trated into Gaza un­der the cover of fog and trav­eled there in cars dis­guised as ve­hi­cles be­long­ing to a lo­cal char­ity.
