The Shin Bet, in cooperation with the IDF and Israel Police, arrested three Hamas operatives who were planning to commit several terror attacks against security forces and civilians in the Jerusalem and Ramallah area.
27-year-old Ahmed Sjadiyeh, 26-year-old Mohammad Hamed and 24-year-old Omer Eid met during their studies at Bir Zeyt University and were a part of Hamas' central student's union in the West Bank.
The three attempted to created homemade explosive devices by downloading instructions from the internet and buying several chemicals and metals.
Their plans included bombing the Beitar Jerusalem soccer stadium in Jerusalem as well as several other terror attacks against Israeli security forces in the West Bank.
To achieve this task, Eid was sent to the stadium on December 4 during a soccer match to review the security and possible ways to commit their act. However, seeing that security was tight, he decided not to take the risk and retreated.

The three were funded by Hamas through another member of the university, who is currently imprisoned in Israel. The funds amounted to tens of thousands of shekels.
