Al-Qaida operatives managed to infiltrate the Gaza Strip after Hamas breached the border with Egypt in January, OC Military Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin said Tuesday. Speaking at the weekly meeting of the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Yadlin said the breach also "enabled Hamas to bring back those who had left for training in Syria and Iran, including snipers, explosives experts, rocket experts and engineers."
