he de facto government’s Interior Ministry in the Gaza Strip said on Saturday it detained suspects accused of collecting information about Hamas’ leadership for the Palestinian Authority and the Ramallah-based Palestinian caretaker government.

A statement from the Interior Ministry said, “Endeavoring to maintain security and order, and to protect citizens and their property, and since ‘criminal’ groups continue to disturb peace before and during Israel’s war against Gaza, security services have doubled their investigations and seized several suspects.”

Initial investigations, the statement added, revealed these “criminal” groups were plotting new crimes against political leaders and resistance fighters.
