Arrested Hamas Operative Gave Israel Intel On Terror Tunnels


The Times of Israel reports: A high-ranking Hamas operative was arrested by Israeli security last month after crossing the border from the Gaza Strip into Israel, the Shin Bet security agency said in a statement Wednesday, announcing that his interrogation provided vast intelligence concerning the Palestinian terror group’s operations in the coastal enclave.

Bilal Razaineh, 24, was interrogated by Israel’s internal security agency after he was caught attempting to enter Israeli territory on November 27. Razaineh has reportedly been a member of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s armed wing, for nearly a decade, and his interrogation yielded information about the terror group’s tunnel-digging operations beneath the Gaza Strip.

According to the Shin Bet, Razaineh was involved in Hamas’s military operations, including tunnel digging and sniper training. He provided Israel with intelligence concerning Hamas tunnel routes in the northern Gaza Strip and the manner in which Hamas is excavating its subterranean networks, as well insider information about Hamas positions and operatives, the Shin Bet said.
