Hundreds of Hamas Terrorists Training in Syria, Iran; EU Border Inspectors Fail to Stop Passage of Terrorists

From Hundreds of Hamas Terrorists Training in Syria, Iran; EU Border Inspectors Fail to Stop Passage of Terrorists:

Hundreds of Hamas members are being smuggled across the Rafah border terminal to Egypt to attend advanced terror training camps in Syria and Iran, senior Israeli defense officials said. In recent days Israel has filed a complaint with the EU, Mahmoud Abbas, and Egypt claiming that the European inspectors at Rafah do not maintain tight enough supervision at the crossing, and fail to stop the stream of terrorists and money used to fund terror in and out of Gaza. Top Israeli defense officials warned that if the EU inspectors don't clamp down on money smuggling and the passage of terrorists, Israel may consider not renewing the agreements on Rafah crossing supervision when they expire in two months.
