Hamas has arrested a Palestinian woman in the Gaza Strip on charges of spying for Israel, sources close to the movement said on Saturday. They told the Hamas-affiliated Majd website that the woman’s mission was to “reach senior leaders of Hamas.” The sources claimed that the woman, whose identity was not revealed, managed to gather “dangerous information” about some of Hamas’s top leaders through their relatives. According to the sources, the 40-year-old woman followed the wives, sons, and daughters of the top Hamas leaders in order to find out where they were hiding during Operation Protective Edge.

The woman also monitored the houses of the Hamas leaders and their relatives during the war, the sources said, adding that she passed on the information to her handlers in the Israeli security authorities.
