It was cleared for publication today that Palestinians who crossed the border into Israel and were questioned by the Shin Bet revealed that Hamas sends its own members to the border in order to sabotage security infrastructure and promote violent activities. In addition, the Shin Bet uncovered that Iran transfers funds to Hamas so that it can carry out the violent protests.
Yehia Ijla, a 19-year-old Hamas member, told the Shin Bet during his interrogation that Hamas instructs members to cut the border fence and steal security cameras while dressed as civilians. Others are in charge of giving civilians tires, which are set on fire near the border to create black clouds of smoke that cover up Hamas’s terrorist acts near the fence. In addition, Hamas terrorists prepare the flaming kites, which have set fire to several Israeli fields near the border, and give them to civilians.
In the interrogation of another Gazan, the Shin Bet discovered that Hamas terrorists go undercover as civilians to try to convince children to cross the border and steal IDF equipment. On May 4, a 13-year-old boy was injured while he was trying to breach the security fence in order to steal a security camera.

The Shin Bet stated that this is an example of Hamas’s cynic use of children and civilians while endangering their lives for the purpose of sabotaging and stealing IDF and civilian equipment along the border. “The IDF and the Shin Bet will continue to work decisively to thwart every attempt to infiltrate Israeli territory in order to defend Israel’s sovereignty and its citizens,” the Shin Bet stated.
