A senior Hamas military leader, who commanded a naval commando unit, escaped from Gaza on an IDF ship, Arab media reported Saturday.

According to the report, the official escaped Gaza shores on an IDF ship, while in possession of cash, recording devices, and a laptop computer containing "classified information" regarding the terror group's commando unit.

This is the second top Hamas commander who has been suspected recently of cooperating with Israel.

According to a report last week in Lebanon's Al Akhbar newspaper, Hamas exposed "a dangerous operation by the Israeli intelligence services" to carry out terror attacks against Hamas targets in Gaza.

The report also claimed that Hamas arrested several ISIS operatives, who had planned a series of suicide attacks in Gaza, which would be carried out using explosive belts and booby-trapped motorcycles.
