Israel Arrests 13 Hamas Terrorists in West Bank
JNS.org – Israeli security forces recently arrested 13 Hamas terrorists, the Shin Bet security agency revealed Sunday.
The suspects were arrested in a joint operation by the Israel Defense Forces and the Shin Bet that exposed an extensive Hamas infrastructure in the Ramallah area and in Judea and Samaria’s Binyamin region.
The operation also seized money, a vehicle and propaganda material, the Shin Bet said in a statement, explaining that the terrorist command center operated under a hierarchical structure and comprised dozens of terrorists who were working to strengthen Hamas’s “broad regional impact” in the West Bank.
Part of the command center’s operations focused on economic and social activity, including financial support for the families of imprisoned and dead Hamas terrorists.
The command center received steady funding from Hamas headquarters in Gaza and from the terrorist group’s satellites abroad. The exposure of this infrastructure demonstrates that the group has continued its attempts to put itself in a position to topple the Palestinian Authority’s seat in the West Bank, and presses on with its project of committing terror attacks against Israel.
