Hamas says it has arrested a Gaza resident who has been working as a spy for Israel since 2011.

According to the terrorist group, the suspect, 37, was instructed by an Israeli intelligence officer to discourage people in Gaza from participating in Friday’s mass demonstration. He has allegedly been providing Israel with information about Palestinian organizations for the past seven years.

Earlier on Wednesday, Hamas stated that the main purpose of Friday’s demonstration is to promote the Palestinian right of return.

On Tuesday, JOL reported that Hamas has set up a camp site near the Gaza Strip border fence to allow protesters to remain in the area for an extended period of time.
