Ismail Haniyeh is summoned urgently to Cairo by Egypt's intelligence chief, told to halt riot campaign on Israel-Gaza border • Official: Haniyeh "told, in no uncertain terms, that the blood of the dead was on his hands" and "history won't forgive Hamas."


Egyptian intelligence officers had also learned that the other terrorist groups in Gaza were also critical of Hamas' provocations on the border, to the point of raising concerns that the enclave was on the brink of an internal confrontation that would plunge it into total chaos.

"Ismail Haniyeh and two bodyguards arrived in Cairo by helicopter within an hour of being summoned. But anyone who says Egyptian intelligence was honoring him by sending a helicopter to get him is wrong – they were furious with him," the senior official said.

"Kamel ‎then kept Haniyeh waiting outside his office. It was humiliating. When Haniyeh was finally called in, you could hear him [Kamel] yelling. Haniyeh didn't dare answer back.

"Haniyeh was told, in no uncertain terms, that the blood of the dead was on his and [Hamas military leader Yahya] Sinwar's hands. They even showed him images of Hamas operatives paying teenagers to go die near the fence."
