Abu Ahmad, spokesperson of the Al Quds Brigades, the armed wing of the Islamic Jihad, stated on Tuesday that his group captured a cell of seven collaborates working with the Israeli security services, and were responsible for several assassinations.  The collaborators were operating in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, Abu Ahmad reported. He added that the collaborators were captured ten days ago after their leader was initially captured by the resistance.

Abu Ahmad stated that all collaborators were interrogated and confessed to involvement in several assassination attacks against resistance fighters in Gaza, including the leader of the Al Quds Brigades in southern Gaza, Mohammad Al Sheikh Khalil, and secretary-general of the Popular Resistance Committees, Jamal Abu Samahdana.

He further said that several collaborators were working with the Israeli security since more than ten years.

Abu Ahmad also said that his group is currently holding talks with leaders of the Hamas-controlled government in Gaza in order to hand the collaborates to the specialized authorities after concluding all interrogations.
