Gaza Strip: Salafist sheikh held by Hamas over alleged IS ties

Hamas forces have in the past cracked down hard on Salafist groups in the coastal enclave

Gaza’s Hamas-run security services have arrested a radical Salafist sheikh, accusing him of membership in ISIS, a security source said Monday.

“Adnan Khader Mayat from the Bureij refugee camp [in central Gaza] was arrested as part of an investigation,” the source told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity and without giving further details.

Sources close to the Salafists said Mayat had been arrested Sunday “by the Hamas government security services who fight mujahedeen who belong to the Salafist movement.”
