In this week’s report from the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, we learn that Hamas’ Interior Minister Fathi Hammad recently led a Hamas delegation to Khartoum, Sudan. In addition, it appears that Hamas will soon be sending some of its members to Sudan for training.
The Hamas visit to Sudan comes just a couple months after the Yarmouk Industrial Complex was struck in a raid believed to have been carried out by Israel. Recent reports have confirmed early claims that the Yarmouk facility is tied to Iran.
