Gaza-based Hamas is doing more than just praising the various terror attacks threatening Israel over the last couple months—at least one Hamas member has been arrested for doing one of them. And if that wasn’t ominous enough, Gaza terrorists are working on their rocket arsenal with apparent plans for another round with Israel.
The IDF Spokesperson’s Twitter feed reported that four rockets were launched from Gaza into the ocean in 24 hours. The reason? “Indication suggests #Gaza terrorists are experimenting in order to increase rocket launching capabilities,” said the IDF Spokesperson’s Tweet.
Meanwhile, one of Hamas’ members in Judea and Samaria (the West Bank) was arrested and confessed to a car terror attack, according to the IDF Blog. The terrorist admitted it was a pre-planned strike, which ended up wounding three soldiers in Jerusalem when the Palestinian ran his car into them.
Despite efforts to make it look like an accident, the terrorist admitted the early November incident was intentional and motivated in part by another vehicular attack that day.
Hamas has repeatedly urged for violence against Israelis during the current terror campaign, in which a number of Israelis have been killed. The IDF Spokesperson’s Twitter feed highlighted multiple cartoons and quotes promoting the terrorism.
Furthermore, Hamas’ own English website noted the group praised the brutal synagogue attack in which five Israelis were killed.
