    GAZA CITY [MENL] -- Hamas has captured the intelligence files of the Palestinian Authority, which include evidence of significant cooperation with Israel, the United States and Arab countries.
    Palestinian sources said Hamas has hauled away the files from the two leading security agencies under the control of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. The sources cited the Preventive Security Apparatus and General Intelligence, both of which engaged in extensive liasion with Arab and Western countries.
    "If these files are thorough, then Hamas will know just about every secret," a Palestinian security source said. "That means, the requests of foreign nations, funding, meetings, joint operations, you name it."
    The sources said Egypt, Israel and the United States were regarded as the major liasions with PSA, founded by Mohammed Dahlan. They said all three countries were said to have significantly aided the agency as part of intelligence and security cooperation.


    WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is poised to lift its economic and diplomatic embargo against the Palestinian government in the West Bank now that a U.S.-backed moderate has evicted Islamic radicals from governance.
    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is expected to announce the new U.S. stance early this week, a senior U.S. official said Sunday.
    The White House declined to comment Sunday, but Jacob Walles, the U.S. consul-general in Jerusalem, said Saturday that the international aid embargo imposed after Hamas won parliamentary elections last year will no longer apply to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' government. He said he expected it to be lifted this week.
    The U.S. move essentially would reset U.S. policy to the days before the Islamic militant group Hamas swept legislative elections in early 2006 and upended U.S. and international peacemaking. The United States, Israel and the European Union regard Hamas as a terrorist


    Veteran aircraft is new ‘secret weapon’ in Iraq
    IAN BRUCE, Defence Correspondent
    June 18 2007

    Ian Bruce Defence Correspondent US forces in Iraq are using an aircraft older than most of the pilots flying it as the latest "secret weapon" against lethal roadside booby-traps.
    Four squadrons of EA-6B Prowler electronic jamming jets - which first saw action over Vietnam in the 1970s - have been deployed to counter the remote-controlled bombs which inflict 80% of fatal casualties on patrolling American troops.
    The Prowlers are unarmed, but carry an array of countermeasures which can block the triggering signals used by insurgents to detonate improvised explosive devices(IEDs).
    Their electronic pods are fitted with jammers which can blot out everything from military radar to mobile phones and the garage-door openers favoured by Iraqi guerrilla fighters to set off bombs from a safe distance.
    Captain David Woods, one of the US Navy's most experienced Prowler pilots, said: "There's no way we can ever know how many explosions we prevent, but I assure you it's effective on the remotely-triggered devices."
