Budding West Bank Hamas Cell Aimed for Major Bloodshed

Israel’s Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency last week announced that it had foiled an extraordinarily dangerous secret terrorist network that Hamas was building in the West Bank. The network was unusually alarming due to the scope of damage it sought to cause.

Hamas wanted to launch bomb attacks on Israeli cities, targeting shopping centers, hotels, restaurants, trains, and buses. The scope of damage being planned by the cell exceeded the potential harm that previous Hamas cells had plotted in recent years, Shin Bet found.

The attacks were to have started in early October, but Shin Bet stepped in before then.

In addition, Hamas planned use the cell to strike crowded targets in Israel in conjunction with one of the recent escalations in violence between Gazan terrorist factions and Israel.
