Not many people are aware that Palestinians need some kind of permit to leave Gaza.
Many think that Gazans may come and go freely.
Apparently that's not the case.
Now we see a report of possible coercion and informing and collaboration.
I wonder why Israel would trust informants that have other needs.
Unless of course this is a routine shake-down and scare tactic.
Perhaps receivers simply ignore the info anyway, or assume the opposite.
How much control does Israel have over Gaza?
Patients in need of treatment across border among those targeted by Israeli intelligence agency, says human rights group
Palestinians hoping to leave Gaza Strip asked to
collaborate with Israel
Palestinian patients and business people hoping to leave the Gaza Strip are being asked to collaborate with Israel in exchange for an exit permit,
a leading Israeli human rights organization claims.
Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) say that 172 people, mostly men aged 18 to 40, were called for interrogation by the Shabak, Israel's internal
intelligence agency, last month. Some who attended interviews were granted exit permits.
Three years on from Operation Cast Lead, Israeli informers play a critical role in monitoring militant cells in the Gaza Strip. Senior sources within
the Israeli Defence Forces say a ground operation is more likely now than at any point since the December 2008 offensive. As tensions simmer,
collaborators are an invaluable resource.
