Hamas: Al Qaeda Has No Foothold in Gaza


Hamas has repeatedly made claims that the Al Qaeda terror organization does not have a foothold in the Gaza Strip. According to a report by Kol Yisrael radio (Israel Radio), the Hamas MP in Gaza, Salah al-Bardawil,  issued a statement saying that any other claim is fabricated. 

Al-Bardawil was responding to a short film clip that had been posted on several websites associated with global jihad  which appeared to have been filmed in Gaza. The video shows 10 masked gunment, dressed in black, who are expressing their support for Al Quaeda.
