(Worthy News) - Gaza’s Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar openly admitted on Tuesday that the weekly “March of Return” protests staged on the Gaza border in recent months were intended to avert an internal crisis and divert pressure onto the Israelis.

“Palestinian officials collaborated with Israeli intelligence in order to sabotage the reconciliation efforts,” he claimed. [ Source: YNet News (Read More...) ]
