Hamas: Beware Israeli text messages

Group says Israel sending messages to Gaza residents in bid to uncover Shalit's location

Hamas warned Gaza residents not to reply to text messages from Israel aimed at helping the Jewish state uncover abducted IDF soldier Gilad Shalit's location.


Hamas' Interior Ministry, which is also in charge of security, issued a statement among Gazans claiming that "Israeli's intelligence" sends text message to Gaza cell phones in an effort to elicit information on Shalit. The messages include a phone number that Gaza residents can call, Hamas said.


The group warned residents in Gaza not to contact those who send such messages or reply to them in any way.


"This path leads to the collapse of security and collaboration with the Zionist enemy," the statement said. "We urge citizens not to contact the Zionist intelligence service via this phone number in any way."


The statement included a threatening message, whereby "security arms in the Gaza Strip will grant this issue the maximal attention."
