Palestinian media reported on Saturday of a senior Hamas naval commander who, with the assistance of the IDF, fled Gaza with a military laptop, surveillance equipment and assorted “classified documents.”
A senior commander in the armed wing of the Gaza-based Hamas terror group fled the enclave over suspicions he was recruited as an informant by the Israeli security services, Palestinian media reported on Saturday.
The reports didn’t identify the operative, other than specifying that he served as a commander with the naval division of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades.
Unconfirmed reports claimed he escaped from the Gaza Strip aboard an Israeli military boat carrying a laptop, surveillance equipment and “classified documents.”
The Islamist group has pledged “radical measures” against Palestinians who “collaborated” with Israel.
In recent years, Hamas militants have executed dozens accused of collaboration with Israel, typically without any judicial process.
Many of the victims were political rivals of the Islamist group within Gaza.
Israel and Hamas have fought three wars in the Gaza Strip since the group wrenched control from the rival Fatah movement in bloody street battles in 2007.
