A Stop the Presses Alert from WND, with thanks to JE:
JERUSALEM — The Iran and Syria-backed Hezbollah militia maintains a cell in the Gaza Strip that directs and finances terror operations against Israelis, including several attacks carried out by a group connected to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, a captured Palestinian terrorist told Israeli interrogators.
The latest information comes as the Lebanese government continues refusing to disarm Hezbollah in spite of a United Nations resolution calling for the disbandment of all armed groups in Lebanon.
Majdi Kamal ‘Abd al-Jabbar ‘Amer, an Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorist recently captured by Israeli forces, revealed during interrogation he took orders to commit attacks from Hezbollah in Lebanon through what he called a Hezbollah “headquarters” in the Gaza Strip, Israeli security officials told WND.
The Brigades is the declared military wing of Abbas’ Fatah party, and is responsible for scores of suicide bombings, shooting attacks and Qassam rocket firings.
According to interrogators, Amer said several months before his arrest he contacted Abu Rabi, a Hezbollah operative in Lebanon, asking him for money for himself and seven other Brigades terrorists to commit shooting attacks against Israelis.
After receiving $1,500 and carrying out attacks, Amer revealed, he asked Rabi for more Hezbollah money and was told to be in touch with a middleman in the Gaza Strip named Abu Lu’ai, who then regularly provided Amer and his group with thousands of dollars in cash for attacks.
“Amer told us several times that Hezbollah was an excellent source of funding for attacks against Israelis,” a security official said. “He described what was like a Hezbollah funding and directing headquarters in Gaza that would provide money for attacks to be carried out in Gaza, the West Bank, and against Israelis elsewhere.”
