Hamas Arrests 20 Salafi Terrorists


Hamas has arrested 20 Gaza terrorists affiliated with Salafi groups, the Bethlehem-based Maan news reports. Hamas reportedly cracked down on the Salafi groups after they failed to abide by orders telling Gaza terrorists to refrain from rocket attacks on Israel.

Hamas has clashed with Salafi groups in the past as well, and Salafi terrorists recently threatened the Muslim Brotherhood, which is widely seen as a Hamas ally. Salafi leaders in Hamas said they would not turn themselves in to Hamas, and warned that they would take revenge.
