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

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.

It is essentially a prison so id say they have as much control as one would usually expect over a prison, anyways they are planning another "offensive" or as some might say massacre, no where else on earth could I imagine any country get away with continually bombing a prison/refugee camp. I can personally see this being Israels greatest mistake.

"According to Haaretz, the next Gaza operation will be shorter than in 2008, but will employ much more firepower. The IDF explained that Hamas and other groups it considers terrorists now have more weapons than they had back in 2008. Since then the groups are said to be extensively using the Kornet anti-tank missiles against the Israeli tanks and rockets fired directly at IDF troops. "
