Shin Bet says Hamas to resume attacks

Sept. 13, 2010 3:40 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 13, 2010 10:47 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Hamas has instructed its military wing to resume terrorist attacks to try to foil the peace talks between Israel and the PLO, a top Israeli security official said Sunday.

The head of the Shin Bet security service, Yuval Diskin, told the Israeli cabinet that terrorism has decreased in the West Bank in the past three years, but this era was coming to a close, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

"In the coming period, the terror threat will increase in step with developments in the peace process," Diskin said.

Hamas claimed responsibility for several attacks in the opening hours of peace negotiations in Washington that began 2 September, including a deadly shooting that targeted Israeli civilians near the illegal Kiryat Arba settlement in the Hebron district.
