Hamas is planning a mega terror attack in order to torpedo the Annapolis talks, Israeli Radio on Sunday quoted Palestinian Authority security sources as saying. The sources claimed that Hamas operatives were digging tunnels in the northern Gaza Strip in order to smuggle weapons and that the Islamist group would attempt to perpetrate an attack emanating from the West Bank. The sources also said that Hamas and Islamic Jihad would significantly increase their missile fire around the time of the conference. OC Military Intelligence Maj.-Gen. Amos Yadlin also said at a recent Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting that if Hamas saw a chance that the US-sponsored Mideast meeting might succeed, it would try to foil it through violence and terrorism.
