Source Claims Hamas Deploys Forces to Prevent Rocket Fire at Israel


rockets-israel1Hamas has deployed a 600-man military force in Gaza that operates 24 hours a day in order to prevent rocket fire at Israel, a senior Arab source said this week.

The past few months have seen a dramatic decline in the number of rockets fired at Israel as compared to a year ago, a trend that has been confirmed by Israeli security sources.

There has also been a drop in the number of weapons smuggled into Gaza from Egypt, which has fielded a relatively large force to fight terror cells operating in Sinai. While the Egyptian activity has been insufficient to dismantle terrorist infrastructure in Sinai, the situation there is significantly better than it was during the Mubarak era.
