Israeli Intelligence Minister: Hamas Restored Calm to Gaza after Warnings from Egypt”

Gaza's dominant Islamist Hamas movement denied that it was under pressure from neighboring Egypt to scale back the six-week-old demonstrations, Reuters reports. "And every time Israel kills a Gaza civilian, Hamas wins", Dershowitz writes.

Egypt and Hamas are acting to prevent an armed conflict with Israel, said Hamas leader in Gaza Yahye Sinwar on Wednesday, stressing this is a key issue on which Cairo and Hamas agree.

He was told "Israel will respond and take far harsher steps, and Egypt will stand by and will not help", Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz told Israel Radio.

Senior Hamas Official Mahmoud Al-Zahhar on Gaza Protests: This Is Not Peaceful Resistance, It Is Supported by Our WeaponsSenior Hamas Official Mahmoud Al-Zahhar said that Hamas was employing "peaceful resistance bolstered by a military force and by security agencies, and enjoying tremendous popular support".

Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum dismissed Katz' claims saying, "there is no mediation".

Two Palestinians were shot dead along the Gazan border on Tuesday, medics reported.

But this week, the border region has been markedly quieter than Monday, when 61 Palestinians were killed and 2,400 injured by Israeli snipers and tear gas.

According to a source, Kamal intervened after Israel was given to understand that don't intend to stop, and that the number of dead in the riots will continue to grow, resulting in the anarchy that could spill into Egyptian territory.

Protests erupted on Monday after the USA opened its embassy in Jersusalem, with more than 35,000 Palestinians gathering along the security fence.

"Abbas demanded that Haniyeh return to Gaza in the helicopter that brought him and order his men to immediately stop the events at the border with Israel...."

These too have been brutally suppressed by Israeli forces, with 117 people Palestinians killed over the past six weeks.
