Hamas accuses NGOs of being spies for Israel

From Middle East Monitor last week:
A group of employees working with international organisations active in the Gaza Strip have been found to be carrying out activities against the resistance, security website Al-Majd reported on yesterday.

Security sources told the Hamas owned website that the group was found to be carrying out doubtful activities related to work sites for the Palestinian resistance.

Later on, the workers of international aid organisations were questioned and they recognised that they are connected to international intelligence services.

The foreigners recognised that they were asked to record footage of resistance work sites such as tunnels, military bases and other sensitive places, in addition to monitoring military movements in Gaza.

The security source reiterated that these collaborators used their work with the international aid organisations to cover-up their anti-resistance acts.

At the same time, they recognised that they are run by international intelligence services connected with the Israeli occupation.
I wonder which NGOs have a secret pro-Israel agenda.

It would not be surprising if Israeli spies infiltrated anti-Israel NGOs to go to Gaza, but chances are far higher that Hamas didn't like what the NGOs were doing (some of them promote democracy, after all) and uses the accusation of them being spies to keep them in line.

Here is a map showing the locations of dozens of NGOs in Gaza City alone that I reproduced in 2013 (the site is no longer up.)

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
