According to Usama al-Asad at Ekhlaas, when the barrier between Gaza and Egypt was destroyed, one of the commanders of al-Qaeda tried to enter Gaza and form a Jihadi group with some disaffected elements of Hamas’ military wing, the Qassam Brigades. When Hamas found out, they captured him and turned him over to Egypt.
Usama al-Asad says his reporting is 100% accurate and claims that this commander is well known and has been fighting in a neighboring country.
Some of the respondents to Usama’s post verify his reporting, while others accuse him of blackening the good name of Hamas.
