4 Hamas Naval Commandos Abducted on Way to Iran – by Egypt?
Hamas accuses Egyptian intelligence of kidnapping senior commandos who were in Sinai en route to Iran for training.
Hamas accused Egyptian intelligence of abducting four residents of the coastal enclave after they entered Sinai on a bus on Wednesday night – after Egypt learned that the four were senior Hamas naval commandos, reports Walla! on Thursday.
The four commandos were on their way from the Rafiah Crossing to the airport in Cairo, where they planned to set out for Iran to receive training according to the paper.
A Hamas source told Al-Jazeera on Thursday night that the Egyptian security forces were responsible for the abduction. The Rafiah Crossing was closed on Thursday, after having been opened in recent days.
Hamas naval commandos have received advanced equipment and training from Iran in the past.
That equipment is said to include “scooters,” a device used to propel underwater divers quickly, allowing Hamas commandos to reach distant targets deep in Israel.
