El Mundo, one of Spain’s major daily newspaper, revealed on Friday that a Spanish mercenary is helping the Israeli forces to fight Hamas in Gaza, Palestine. “They pay very well, good equipment and quiet work,” a self-described neo-Nazi Pedro Díaz Flores Corrales, was quoted as saying.
Among the foreign fighters is a notorious Spanish mercenary who previously fought alongside Ukrainian neo Nazis against the Russian army last year. Pedro Diaz Flores was previously presumed dead by the Russians, but he is alive and well, according to the newspaper who interviewed him.
The paper said he gets paid 3900 euros a week to fight in Gaza and that he was not hired directly by the Israeli army, but through a third party.
“So I came for economy, for money. They pay very well, they offer good equipment and the work is calm. It is 3,900 euros [$4,187] per week, complementary missions aside,” he said of his motives for joining the occupation forces.
