Sources close to Hamas speculated Thursday morning that the organization would refrain from terror attacks inside Israel, despite warnings following Wednesday's IDF shelling of a residential building that left 20 Palestinians dead. Israel Radio reported the Hamas sources as saying the group will most likely focus on pinpoint attacks against Israeli forces in and around the Gaza Strip. Kidnapping operations, similar to the capturing of Gilad Shalit, were an option Hamas was considering, according to the sources.
