Various Israeli citizens received on Saturday threatening text messages sent from anonymous numbers seemingly on behalf of Hamas's military wing.

The messages included warnings that Hamas would conquer Israel, fire rockets and kidnap Israeli civilians, making reference to former IDF soldier Gilad Schalit who was abducted by Hamas terrorists in 2006.

The delivery of the messages coincided with the ten-year anniversary of the assassination of Hamas founder Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.
