Gaza interior minister vows to hunt down collaborators

July 26, 2009 10:48 A.M. (Updated: July 26, 2009 9:45 P.M.)
Gaza – Ma’an – The Interior Minister of the de facto government in Gaza issued a warning on Saturday that his security forces will hunt down “collaborators and traitors” in an effort to achieve “total security.”

Interior Minister Fathi Hammad said in a statement on the ministry’s website that “the day will come when we will bring to justice the killers who participated in killing Palestinians.”

Hammad’s predecessor, Hamas leader Sa’id Siyam, was killed in January in an Israeli airstrike on his brother’s home. There is wide suspicion that a Palestinian spy informed Israel of his location.

The Palestinian official also claimed that his ministry had released 20 prisoners on the occasion of Muhammad’s night journey. He said that any prisoner “found not to be involved in security issues” was released.

He also mentioned that the ministry is planning to rebuild the security compounds that were destroyed by the Israeli military during the offensive of last December and January.

“We managed to achieve what was not achieved by 22 Arab states when we say ‘No, we will not give up our rights to the USA and Israel,’” the minister’s statement read.
