    Default Gaza Militant groups

    http://news.xinhuanet.com/english201...c_13811992.htm

    Thirteen armed Palestinian groups vowed Sunday to respond unanimously to the Israeli assassination of three militant activists from the Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
    Anyone know who the 13 groups were other than Hamas and Islamic Jihad?

    Default One place to check

    Try The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, whose briefings are readily available and website is: http://www.terrorism-info.org.il/site/home/default.asp, sample:http://www.terrorism-info.org.il/mal...l/ipc_e178.htm

    Others who know the area far better will be along shortly, Rex B for example and maybe Wilf (although absent of late).

    coffinman as David said Meir Amit can be a useful source as long as you do not make the mistake of thinking they are in anyway a neutral one. The fact they renamed themselves in memory of Meir Amit who was an Israeli General, politician and head of Mossad and Wikipedia descibes the site as
    The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, formerly The Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, is an Israeli NGO. It was renamed n honor of Meir Amit.

    The Center is directed by former Military Intelligence officer, Dr. Reuven Ehrlich.[1] The center is often regarded as being the "public face of Israeli intelligence."

    The Centers research staff, mostly former Military Intelligence officers, compile weekly reports that are published online www.intelligence.org.il
    should give a clue as to its leanings. As to the 13 groups they had not commented when I looked. Hamas may not be one of them as it usually tries to suppress the other groups desire to attack the occupiers as it knows it, and the civilian population, will bear the brunt of the reprisals as the only group with identifiable assets.

    Default ICG on Palestinian radical Islamist groups

    International Crisis Group recently released an outstanding overview of radical Islam in Gaza.

    (Apologies if someone has already posted the link elsewhere... I'm buried in end-of-term stuff, and haven't been on SWC much lately.)
    They mostly come at night. Mostly.

    I found this site the other day and it hasn't been updated in about a week but may prove useful in the future. Hamas and Islamic Jihad in fact both did indeed sign this or whatever. Several articles mention both of them specifically but fail to mention the other 11, since they know 13 groups signed it, they must know the other right? so thats what im looking for but thanks for the help so far, keep trying, i am.
