ISIS in Gaza Says Hamas Worse Than ‘Jewish Occupiers’ as Tensions Between Groups Rise

The Supporters of the Islamic State in Jerusalem, a Salafist organization in Gaza that identifies with the bloodthirsty terror group ISIS, have taken to Twitter to condemn the coastal enclave’s ruling Hamas party, heightening tensions between the two groups, Israel’s NRG reported on Monday.

The group even went so far as to say that the actions of Hamas’ security forces are worse than those of the “Jewish Occupier.”

The statement was issued after Hamas security forces reportedly demolished a mosque in Gaza affiliated with the Salafist group. On Twitter they said, “Armed men from Hamas came to Deir Al-Balah and destroyed the mosque, acting in a way that even the Jewish occupiers and the Americans have not acted.”

Hamas’ forces also arrested one of the group’s leaders last month due to his affiliation with ISIS…

On Monday morning, a bomb damaged a wall at a security site run by Hamas’ armed wing. There were no casualties.

Hamas has deployed masked gunmen in Salafi strongholds, set up checkpoints and destroyed a makeshift mosque that it says was used by Salafists to launch attacks.

    Looks like Sun Tsu was right again:

    ‘If you wait by the river long enough, the bodies of your enemies will float by.’

    ISIS and Hamas can recruit from Gaza until they almost empty the place, and Israel can mop up what’s left and take it.
