The Palestinian intelligence chief on Sunday accused Iran of close involvement in Hamas's violent takeover of Gaza, saying Teheran funded the Islamic militants and trained hundreds of them. The intelligence chief, Tawfiq Tirawi, said the battle for Gaza was carefully orchestrated. "It was a joint program with Iran," he said. In implied criticism of Syria, he said that a month before the battle began, the Syrian-based leaders of Hamas met with the leaders of the Hamas military wing in an undisclosed Arab capital. "In this meeting, they discussed all the details of the operation." Tirawi told a news conference.
