Hamas to release files showing Palestinian intelligence collaboration with the US CIA, UK’s MI5 and Shin Bet
June 23, 2007
The centerpiece is evidence of the Palestinian Authority Preventive Security service’s disclosure that Hamas’ elite undercover Unit 102, only 25 strong, underwent lengthy training in Iran in advanced combat tactics modeled on those of the US Seals and the Israel Navy’s Shayetet 13.
DEBKAfile’s military sources add: Unit 102 operated under such deep cover
that even the commanders of Hamas’ military wing and its Executive Force
did not know it existed. Hamas is making good on its threat to use the huge
archive of Palestinian Authority intelligence documents it captured in Gaza
to compromise Mahmoud Abbas and members of his regime and show them up as minions
of foreign powers and traitors to Palestinian national interests.
