Hamas Beefs Up Border Presence


Reports said that Hamas had beefed up its forces along the Gaza border fence Monday night. Terrorists belonging to the Izzadin al-Qasam brigades had taken up positions near the border fence as a precaution against an Israeli attack before the release of terrorists in exchange for Gilad Shalit.

Reports said that IDF planes and drones have been hovering in the skies over Gaza for several days, and that Hamas fears an Israeli “trick”to rescue Shalit without releasing terrorists.
