Muhammad Abu Adra, 43, was recruited by Hamas while in Gaza over a year and a half ago. Shin Bet: We view the exploitation of Israeli citizenship for the aiding of terrorist activities with severity.
An Israeli citizen is alleged to have acted as a Hamas agent inside Israel and worked for the terrorist organization’s military wing inside the Gaza Strip, the Shin Bet security agency and the Israel Police revealed, Friday.
The citizen, who was arrested on Feb. 3, is 43-year-old Muhammad Abu Adra. Ada’s father is a Bedouin and his mother is from the Gaza Strip. Abu Adra is married to a Gaza resident and splits his time between Rafah and the central Israeli city of Rehovot, frequently using the Erez Border Crossing.
A Shin Bet investigation revealed Hamas recruited Abu Adra while he was in Gaza around a year and a half ago. From that time, he remained in covert operational contact with Hamas members, collecting and providing them with information on the location of Iron Dome batteries.
