A joint Hamas-Jihad delegation holds talks in Cairo on Gaza

Sources in Cairo report talks taking place in Cairo on Monday between a Palestinian Hamas-Islamic Jihad delegation headed by Hamas’ Ismail Haniyeh and Egyptian General Intelligence chiefs. They discussed the situation in the Gaza Strip, including the state of the ceasefire deal Hamas concluded with Israel, the reopening of the Rafah crossing to Egypt, and the forthcoming Palestinian round table conference in Moscow with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the chair. The delegation next proceeds to Moscow without Haniyeh. DEBKAfile’s sources report that the fact that Hamas and Jihad appear together as a joint delegation gives the lie to reports that Jihad is pushing hard for the escalation of attacks on Israel while Hamas is urging restraint. The fact is that the two terrorist groups are on the same page when it comes to attacking Israeli troops and neighborhoods from the Gaza Strip.

    Just get them and kill them.
    If Debka knows where they are, it is not so difficult to snipe them down
