  • IDF: Hamas Exploits Israel Entry Permits for Gaza Residents – Yaakov Lappin
    Maj.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai, the coordinator of government activities in the territories, told the Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds that Hamas will force Israel to close the crossing to Gaza if attempts to recruit Gazans for terrorist missions do not cease. Gazans requiring medical care or seeking business opportunities cross daily into Israel and the West Bank via the Erez crossing.
    He cited a cancer patient from Khan Yunis who traveled to Nablus for medical care and was asked by Hamas to gather intelligence. A resident of Shati who trades in Israel was apprehended by security forces while trying to smuggle goods for Hamas. In 2015 Israel issued more than 100,000 entry permits for Gazans to enter Israel for medical care, trade and Muslim prayers in Jerusalem. (Jerusalem Post)
