Cairo sources say recent arrest of senior Hamas operative privy to kidnapped Israeli soldier's location has prompted Gaza Islamist group to order he be moved immediately
The recent arrest of Mohammed Dababish, a top Hamas intelligence officer, in Egypt has prompted the Gaza group to move kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit to a new hideout.
According to Cairo's intelligence services, Dababish is among of a handful of Hamas officials who know exactly where Shalit is being held and who his captors are. His arrest 10 day ago – for allegedly trying to use a fake passport to cross from Egypt to Gaza – is believed to have sparked considerable concern within the Islamist group.
Egyptian intelligence sources ventured that following the arrest, the Israeli soldier's captures were ordered to move him to a new location immediately.
Dababish's arrest, according to several sources, was made possible following information given to Cairo's intelligence services by their Israeli and American counterparts.
It has also come to light that a recent Egyptian warning to Israel about Palestinian militants plan to fire missiles at Israel from Sinai derived from information Dababish gave his interrogators.
Cairo has rejected Hamas' demand to release their operative, who the group claims was on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia when he was arrested.
Egypt however, believed Dababish was returning from the Strip from Damascus, where he devised a plan to smuggle weapons into Gaza Strip.
