Israeli minister: Hezbollah agents entering Gaza

Israel's Cabinet minister in charge of strategic affairs says the Hezbollah guerrilla group has infiltrated agents into the Gaza Strip to train Palestinian militants.
Moshe Yaalon told reporters on Thursday that it is "relatively easy" for Hezbollah agents to make the journey from Lebanon. He offered no evidence to support his statement.
Gaza is ruled by the Hamas militant group, which, like Hezbollah, is sworn to Israel's destruction.
Israel has long accused Hezbollah and its Iranian backers of supporting Palestinian militants, but officials have said little about an actual physical presence of Iranian-backed militia in Gaza.
Hamas has denied that foreign forces are in Gaza.
Yaalon's office says Hezbollah has been infiltrating Gaza quietly since Israel withdrew in 2005.
