IDF set for electronic and signals control of Hamas, Islamic Jihad command centers, after rocket fire
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 26, 2014

Before it ended with Hamas rocket fire Saturday night, July 26, the 12-hour Israel-Hamas ceasefire offered Israeli intelligence a rare opportunity for collecting enemy data.  In the heat of battle, the IDF and its clandestine arms were unable to gain electronic and SIGINT access to the underground Hamas and Islamic Jihad command and control centers, which appear to be well equipped with complex tactical and encrypted communications systems. Now they must go for Hamas’ sophisticated intelligence production processing system, elements of which may have broken surface during the ceasefire.

A Hamas terror tunnel unearthed in Gaza
How Human Intelligence (HUMINT) works for Israel’s Gaza operation – its crucial eyes on the ground
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 19, 2014

Only “boots on the ground” can provide eyes and ears among the local populace, and the cover for agents trained to operate in an Arab environment to gather the information needed for charting the IDF's moves.

Hamas launches M-75 missiles
The hidden intelligence agendas behind Hamas’ 1,000-rocket barrage and Israel’s 1,500 air strikes
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report July 14, 2014

As Israel’s Operation Defensive Edge ended its first week on July 14, military and intelligence experts were finding it hard to believe that Hamas had fired 1,000 rockets against Israel at random. They now conclude that Hamas was collecting operational data for itself, Iran and Hizballah to use in future conflicts – both about the weak points of Iron Dome and for guidance systems to lend their future rockets and mortars greater accuracy. Those experts advise Israel to send a small undercover special force into Gaza for intelligence missions to tip the scales in its favor.

Brussels Jewish Museum attack
Thousands of al Qaeda terrorists are on the loose in US and Europe – under the radar of Western intelligence
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly June 3, 2014

When French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said, ”We’ve never faced a challenge on this scale,” he was referring to around 11,000 Islamist terrorists on a constant commute between the Middle East, North America and Europe primed for lethal action. Never has the West seen the likes of a terrorist army on this scale – even when Osama bin Laden was recruiting - as the latest DEBKA Weekly out Friday showed with facts and figures.
