Israeli newspaper Ynet News yesterday revealed that Israeli intelligence service Shin Bet is facing difficulties recruiting collaborators in Gaza.

The newspaper reported how a Palestinian from Gaza allegedly became a double agent after he was sent into Israel to gather information for the Palestinian resistance but was then recruited by Israel and provided with a phone. However, he later told the Israeli operator he didn’t want to work with him, and cut all ties with him.

He then returned to Gaza and told the Palestinian factions everything that had happened. He was then asked by Palestinian factions to return and work with Israel, however when he did he was detained by Shin Bet.

The Israeli news website reported that Hamas is monitoring and analysing Shin Bet’s activities in Gaza.
