The government in Gaza has distinguished itself by campaigning to put an end to the dilemma of Gazans’ security collaboration with Israel. It has even scored success against the Israeli security forces in this regard. A considerable number of dangerous spies were uncovered working for Israel during the Pillar of Defense campaign in the Gaza Strip. Today a concentrated campaign is being conducted against Gazans working for Israeli intelligence. A serious attempt is being made to eliminate this phenomenon, which is considered a high priority at the national level. The most important aspect of the campaign is educating people on how to refrain from being coerced into spying for Israel. However, the campaign itself doesn’t mean we are living in a society of traitors, as the percentage of spies among Palestinians living in Gaza is less than any other community under occupation.
