GAZA, (PIC)– The Palestinian interior ministry has denied Hebrew press reports claiming that elements of Al-Qaeda had entered Gaza from Sinai through the tunnels.
Interior minister Ihab Al-Gussain described the report by a Hebrew daily as false.
He quoted a recent press Hebrew report as saying that 12 Bedouins were the ones who carried out the attack on Eilat in mid-August and no Palestinian participated in the incident.
The minister said that the report affirmed his ministry’s repeated assertion that no Palestinian from the Strip had any connection to that attack.
Ghussain charged that Israel was always holding Gaza responsible for any attack to resume its crimes against the Palestinian people.
