Swords of Truth

The Swords of Truth is a Palestinian Islamist group based in the Gaza Strip.

In 2007, the group threatened to behead female TV broadcasters who don't wear strict Islamic dress.[1] The threat was sent by e-mail to news organizations: "We will cut throats, and from vein to vein, if needed to protect the spirit and moral of this nation."[1]

The group has previously claimed responsibility for bombing Internet cafes and music shops.[1] The assailants used to detonate small bombs outside businesses at night, causing damage but no injuries.

According to a senior Palestinian security official The Swords of Truth has fewer than 100 members and was formed in 2006.[1]
