Al-Qaeda Announces Its Presence in Gaza – Khaled Abu Toameh
(Daily Alert)

It’s official: al-Qaeda has begun operating in Gaza. A video posted on YouTube this week showed terrorists belonging to the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), announcing plans to wage jihad against the “infidels, traitors and Crusaders.”

    The video features 10 heavily-armed, masked terrorists declaring allegiance to ISIS, whose men are responsible for most of the atrocities in Syria and Iraq over the past few years. In the video, a spokesman for the group announces that it now has “lions and armies in the environs of Jerusalem.”

    “The presence of al-Qaeda in Gaza is bad news not only for Hamas, but for all Palestinians,” said a Palestinian journalist from Gaza City. “Palestinians see the crimes and massacres perpetrated by al-Qaeda in Iraq and Syria and fear that they could be repeated in the West Bank and Gaza.”  (Gatestone Institute)
