Shin Bet Chief: Gaza Op Succeeding

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Shin Bet (General Security Agency) chief Yuval Diskin told Security Cabinet members that the Gaza op has dealt a heavy blow to the Hamas infrastructure.

"[Hamas] has been hit like [it's] never been hit before," Diskin said.

  Senior Hamas officials are in hiding, he said, and their ability to govern has been greatly diminished by the Israeli offensive.

"Many Hamas officials are hiding in mosques throughout Gaza on the assumption that Israel will avoid attacking Muslim houses of worship," Diskin said, but many mosques serve as weapons storehouses and command centers.

Many of the group's explosives factories and weapons labs have been decimated, as have dozens of smuggling tunnels along the border with Egypt.

According to the Shin Bet chief, Hamas operatives are working to repair the tunnels so they can evacuate senior officials to Egypt before they're arrested or killed by the IDF.
