The Hamas terror organization has ordered its followers to resume suicide bombings against Israelis following a wave of violence and terror across the country.
Quoting unnamed Israeli sources, Ynet reported Monday that Hamas terrorists in Hebron and Nablus have been ordered to carry out suicide missions in crowded areas in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.
A Palestinian Authority security official also revealed that PA forces recently busted a Hamas ring in Hebron, finding in their possession large quantities of money and explosives. Six of the terror cell members admitted under interrogation their wish to die.
Hamas has praised the terror attacks recently striking Israel, with group officials calling for an armed resistance against Israel. On Sunday, Mahmoud al-Zahar, a Hamas leader, said the current “popular Intifada” should turn into militarized conflict.
Last week, Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas leader in Gaza, urged the “strengthening and increasing of the intifada.” During a Friday sermon at a mosque in Gaza, Haniyeh declared that armed resistance was the “only path that will lead to liberation.”
Over the last two weeks, Hamas has called for two “days of rage” against Israel, urging Palestinians to carry out terror attacks against Israelis as well as riot against IDF soldiers.
The new call for suicide bombings comes after a Channel 10 report revealed Palestinian security officials believe Hamas terrorists are planning a large scale terror attack against Israelis in Judea and Samaria.
