During a 2007 June 12 meeting with US Ambassador to Israel Richard H. Jones, the then head of Military Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin said that Gaza was "number four" on his list of threats, preceded by Iran, Syria, and Hizbullah in that order, according to a leaked US diplomatic cable revealed WikiLeaks on Monday.

Yadlin said military intelligence had been predicting armed confrontation in Gaza between Hamas and Fatah since Hamas won the January 2006 legislative council elections, the cable revealed.
