Hamas officials have admitted for the first time that they are actively looking to carry out suicide bombings, after numerous warnings from both Israeli and PA security services that the Islamist terror group is doing so.
According to statements made to Arabic media, terror attacks perpetrated by sleeper cell in Judea and Samaria will target political as well as military VIPs.
The original instruction form Hamas to their sleeper cells to carry out suicide attacks on Israeli civilians came in October.
The sources as reported by Yediot Acharonot said that targets have been chosen ahead of time, and that the attacks will be carried out inside the green line.
These new orders come just days after Israeli security forces succeeded at uncovering a Hamas sleeper network of some 25 terrorists. These terrorists from Abu Dis, were in the process of carrying out such an order from Hamas.
Hamas claims that the network was reportedly discovered due to one of the operatives asking for a favor from a PA police officer, to provide him with falsified papers.
Hamas has said that they will continue in their attempts to attack Israeli targets and carry out suicide attacks. The organization believes that other networks will not be discovered, as they claim that none of their operatives has previous security infractions that will allow them to be tracked.
