Sources in Hamas said that senior officials in the organization in the Gaza Strip have gone into hiding out of fear that Israel will attempt to strike them, London-based pan-Arab daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported on Monday.

According to the report, following the arrest of some 120 Hamas activists and legislators in the southern West Bank on Sunday, the leadership in Gaza have reduced their movement and communications. Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and armed wing leader Mahmoud Zahar were named as two leaders who have taken such steps.
