Phone Call from Meshaal Exposed Deif's Location?


According to Lebanese news outlets quoted by Israel Hayom Thursday, a telephone call from Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Meshaal to military wing chief Mohammed Deif gave away the latter's location in a home at the Sheikh Radwan neighborhood in northwest Gaza, and to the home's bombing by the IAF last night.

The reports say that the phone conversation took place shortly after a meeting in Doha, Qatar, between Meshaal and Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas. A senior Palestinian source said that Meshaal was under pressure to accept the Egyptian ceasefire proposal and wanted to consult with Deif.
