Hamas video raises concerns of possible train attack

A new train line from Ashkelon to Sderot may be vulnerable to missile fire from the Gaza Strip, a new Hamas video suggests. The video, found by Israeli forces in Gaza, depicts detailed Palestinian surveillance of an Israeli passenger train.

The train line, only a few months old, was built to link the southern city of Sderot to the center of Israel. All the stations are fully protected against missile attacks. But now it has emerged that the Palestinians are monitoring the train line from a vantage point only several hundred meters from the border.

An unnamed official involved in the incident told Israel Hayom that the footage was recovered after a recent arrest of a senior Hamas operative in Gaza.
