A document seized recently by the IDF in Gaza shows that the militant Hamas organization, which held discussions in Egypt two weeks ago with Fatah,
saw the talks as a means to strengthen its ties with Egypt and to increase funding from the Palestinian Authority for terror attacks. The talks were
seemingly aimed at halting the terror attacks against Israel, at least within the Green Line.
The document, written November 12 by the Hamas' citizen support branch, is an internal pamphlet distributed to the organization's activists and to
the Palestinian preventive security system in the Gaza Strip. The document was confiscated by the IDF last week in a raid on the preventive security
headquarters, and its contents were analyzed by IDF Intelligence.
