Shin Bet thwarted an attempted terror attack by Hamas in the West Bank and reported it on Wednesday.
The Israel Security Authority interrogated Issa Shalalda, 21, and Omar Ma'soud, 20, activists in the Hamas student cell at Birzeit University. The two students were recruited via Facebook by the military wing of Hamas in the Gaza Strip to carry out attacks and aid with financial transfers. During the interrogations, Hazem Hamayel, 24, allegedly contacted a Hamas official and was instructed to take part in terrorist activities on behalf of Hamas. Hazem was indicted for contact with a terrorist organization.
