Revelations About Hamas Chevron an ‘Earthquake’ for Terror Group
The spying was at the impetus of Hamas in Gaza, which wanted to make sure that it was in control of Hamas in Yehudah and Shomron, and especially in Chevron. The female terrorists are also used to recruit new Hamas members. Via committees and public activist organizations sponsored by Hamas, the female terrorists invite new members via social media, and have them install spyware on their personal devices. Hamas then tries to activate them to carry out terror attacks. Among those recruited in this way were attorneys, judges, teachers, and other members of the upper strata of Chevron Arab society.
Many of these recruits are used to transfer money or otherwise assist terrorists “in the field.” In many cases, the report said, the female terrorists are unaware of how they are being used by Hamas, believing that they are working on committees to lobby for the release of terrorists held in Israeli prisons, or organizing celebrations for religious events, for example. The report said that several of the female terrorists expressed regret that they had been used for Hamas’s terror purposes. None of the female terrorists were members of families of top Hamas terrorists, the report noted; the terror group recruits its functionaries from Chevron’s middle and working classes.
The Hamas source confirmed Channel 20’s report, telling reporters that “this is the way it is in Hamas – one stabs the other in the back to get ahead. I am sure that this broadcast will not go unnoticed in Hamas, and it will have significant ramifications on the group. Hamas needs to understand that something has happened here, and individuals will be called upon to pay a heavy price for what has happened.”
