NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli military intelligence’s department of studies and research said in a report that Hamas Movement adapts with the changes in the world and has become impossible to eliminate.

This came in a report written by specialist in security and military sciences Isaac Ben-Israel, who work for the Israeli military intelligence (Aman) in the department of studies and research.

The report is composed of 37 pages and discusses the political and military future of Hamas in light of the current regional changes especially in the Arab and Muslim world. The report was tabled in a seminar held by the department.

The report talks about how Hamas, according to facts, has become stronger politically, militarily and at the security level.

Ben-Israel’s study points out that the Hamas-affiliated government, since the Hamas takeover in 2007 and until today, has been durable and flourishing, especially as a result of the diplomatic efforts undertaken by head of Hamas’s political bureau Khaled Mashaal and other members of the bureau.

The researcher affirmed in his report that the diplomatic moves made by Hamas officials in a number of countries like Damascus, Ankara, Sana’a, Khartoum and Doha confirm that this Movement has evolved into a political system with a state.

“This means that the chances to eradicate it are no longer available, but if we want to be frank with ourselves, we will say it is hard,” he added.

At the security level, his study acknowledges that the Hamas-affiliated security forces are strong and experienced and was able to frustrate a lot of Israeli activities that aimed to overthrow the government of Ismail Haneyya.

The young people inside Hamas have become aware of the plots made by the Shabak and the like, developed experience and got extensive security sessions, so their work is professional and not chaotic, the study stressed.
