Hamas regime has acquired a secure communications network for civilian and military use
GERTZ-Officials said the new communications network has been enhanced to prevent Israeli military interception and jamming. They said the wireless system has covered the entire Gaza Strip.
"It has robbed Israel of its ability to listen to conversations by military commanders or political leaders," a Hamas official said.
The dual-use communications system was identified as Senao. The system, produced by the Taiwanese company of the same name, was comprised of two-way handheld wireless radios with a range of 50 kilometers.

Officials said the Senao frequencies could not be jammed or intercepted. They said the system, with multiple channels, contained security codes to prevent detection. "The system will play a major role in communicating with our fighters in any war with Israel," an official said. "It could operate both above ground and underground."
The Senao system was said to feature an open architecture for software and hardware upgrades. The Hamas regime was said to have used such radios as Senao SN-868, SN-868plus and SN-869.
Industry sources said, however, that the Israeli military has probably penetrated the Senao system. The sources said Israel has probably acquired the frequencies used by the radios as well as special eavesdropping systems.
Let's hope so, because secure communications based on cell phone technology raised hell against Hizballah in the 2006 war
