A seaport in the Gaza Strip would "pose a huge security threat to Israel," Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Yuval Diskin told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense committee on Tuesday.

Diskin went on to say that Hamas and Islamic Jihad have thousands of home made missiles, some of which can reach Gush Dan.

He also told the FADC that contrary to world opinion, there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. While Diskin did not object to easing the blockade, he said that the most dangerous smuggling goes through the tunnels.
