Hamas fears Israel has managed to infiltrate its Damascus-based leadership, a senior Gaza-based group member told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.
The unnamed official said last month’s assassination of top Hamas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai had prompted an investigation into how Israel was receiving information regarding the movements of the group’s people.
«Only a few people in the Hamas leadership knew about Mabhouh’s secret activities and movements», noted the official.
Hamas is also looking into the possibility that Israel has infiltrated the Syrian security services, which are responsible for the safety of the terror groups that operate out of Damascus.
Israel has denied involvement in Mabhouh’s killing, and pointed out that Hamas has many other enemies in the region.

Mossad never comments. No one will be able to understand anyhow.
The only thing Hamas needs to know is that their leaders have no place to hide. In 1996, a man named Yahya Ayyash created a lot of trouble for Israel. He was a bomb maker, an expert in improvised explosive devises. Advanced remote controlled timers for bombs inside suicide belts was one of his specialties.
One blue day Ayyash picked up his mobile phone to answer a call. Unfortunately, it was not his grand mother who came online. The mobile phone he had picked up was a copy of his own, replaced by a Shin Bet operative. The booby-trapped mobile phone blew his head off.
