FAN). 13 September, Hamas security service arrested one of Jaysh al-Islam members, raiding his house. unknown, what caused the detention.

Hamas and Israel are negotiating a prisoner exchange with the mediation of Egypt. According to sources from the Palestinian movement, Egyptian delegation led by a general Ahmed Abdel Khalek - the head of the Palestinian department in the Egyptian intelligence service - held meetings in Israel and the Gaza Strip.
Hamas demands - release all prisoners, who were previously released under the so-called. "The deal of Gilad Shalit" in 2011 year and re-detained by the Israeli authorities later. Also the movement wants, for Israel to release “all women, children and sick ". Instead, Hamas offers information about two Israelis, disappeared in the Gaza Strip in 2014 and 2015 years, as well as the transfer of the remains of two IDF servicemen, killed during Operation Unbreakable Rock in 2014 year.
The Israeli authorities are unlikely to arrange such conditions, so either Hamas will have to cut back on its appetites or offer more, or the deal with a high degree of probability simply will not take place.

Qatari resource "Al-Jazeera" posted the film, dedicated to the brigades of "Izz al-Din al-Qassam" - the military wing of the Hamas movement ruling in the Gaza Strip. It shows samples of weapons, which the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam brigades have. Standard rocket launchers captured, however, the method of their manufacture is especially noteworthy.. It directly testifies to the limited capabilities of the Hamas military wing to create weapons: eg, for the production of missiles, shells raised from the seabed from two sunken British ships of the First World War are used. Rocket rails are created from old underground pipelines.
The @AJArabic channel aired al-Qassam Brigades’ capabilities. They displayed their resourcefulness by using old underground piping, unexploded IDF ordinance & shells from sunken WW1 military vessels to build rockets. Essentially, al-Qassam is using the IDF’s weapons against them. pic.twitter.com/j7JV4Kvw32

This unconventional approach of Hamas in the production of weapons is a direct consequence of Egypt's tough measures to destroy the tunnel network., leading to the Sinai Peninsula bordering the Gaza Strip. Weapons previously purchased for the Palestinian movement entered Gaza via underground routes, however, since the early 2010s, the Egyptian authorities have destroyed and flooded many tunnels. Among them there were even such, through which a passenger car could pass. As a result, Hamas lost a significant part of its military supplies and is now forced to look for ammunition at the bottom of the sea..
Al-Qassam also show cased them using old IDF and WW1 ordinances to use in their missiles. Also showing casing the Q-20/Q-12 which i’ve been seen referenced before. pic.twitter.com/4ozCuu9Bbl

Commentators on social media also noticed a few funny moments.: eg, during interviews with several members of the group, messages flaunted behind them in the background, written in English and clearly targeting an English speaking audience.
It’s amusing when militant factions add subtle messages in their publications. In the recent @AJArabic al-Qassam feature, some messages were placed in the background for English speaking viewers. I doubt “Abu Ibrahim” & “Abu Salman” can read the English written behind them. #Gaza pic.twitter.com/AfBxS5DccL

The comic situation is, that the militants in the film will hardly be able to read what they allegedly wrote themselves. Especially given the objective problems with education in the Gaza Strip, where children cannot get a full education due to overcrowding in most schools, working in two shifts.
11 September in the city of Kafr Kaddum in the east of the province of Qalqiliya, there were regular clashes between local residents and Israeli security forces.

Demonstrations took place in populated areas in the Palestinian territories, condemning the establishment of diplomatic relations between Israel and Bahrain. Residents consider the recognition of Israel by the Arab countries a betrayal of the Palestinian people.
