Mordechai explained in this magazine(Elaph) that this cooperation was discovered recently.. He stated that the members of the Islamic State entered the Gaza Strip a few days ago from Egypt via the tunnels. The purpose of their visit was to carry out military exercises in the strip. They prepared military drills and exchanged knowledges concerning urban warfare.
In the interview, the coordinator explained that Hamas is aiding ISIS by providing medical treatment for its people in Gazan hospitals in exchange for money and weaponry. According to Mordechai, there is mutual coordination between the military echelons of Hamas and ISIS, which is known to Hamas’s senior political leaders, as well.
