If Hamas has not carried out many terrorist attacks in recent months, it’s not because the Gaza terrorist organization has given up trying.
On the contrary, Hamas has been intent on launching mass-casualty operations against Israeli targets, but the IDF and Shin Bet have thwarted them, B’Chasdei Hashem, in some cases after they had reached an advanced stage of preparations, The Jerusalem Post reported on Wednesday, citing a senior IDF source.
“In the past six months, of all the attacks that occurred, only one was orchestrated by Hamas,” he said, referring to the the October shooting of the Henkins, Hy”d.
“The remainder of the terror efforts were stopped before they could develop into action,” the source said. “Often we thwarted them at very advanced stages, involving bomb labs that we recently raided.”
They found M-16s and Kalashnikovs, assault weapons that could be used in major operations.
