Israel reveals major Hamas terror operation in Europe

Intelligence efforts have revealed "considerable" information proving that Hamas "acted to expand its violent activity abroad in order to attack innocents around the world."

The Hamas terrorist organization is working to advance attacks against targets in the Middle East, Africa and Europe, according to a statement released by Israeli security forces Saturday night.

The Mossad, Israel Security Agency and Israel Defense Forces said that a continuing intelligence effort had revealed “considerable” information proving that Hamas “acted to expand its violent activity abroad in order to attack innocents around the world.”

Last month, Danish and German authorities arrested seven suspects acting on behalf of Hamas to attack civilians on European soil.

The Israeli security agencies said on Saturday that the ongoing operation had uncovered “a comprehensive and in-depth picture of Hamas’s terrorist activities… including details of areas of action, targets for attacks and those involved in implementing the activity—from Hamas commanders in Lebanon to the last attackers in the operational infrastructure, as well as information on the intention to attack the Israeli Embassy in Sweden, the acquisition of UAVs and the use of elements from criminal organizations in Europe.”

The statement noted that Hamas “draws inspiration” from the global terrorist activity of Iran, which aims to attack Israeli, Jewish and Western targets “at any price.”

“The Mossad, the ISA and the IDF, in conjunction with the international security and enforcement bodies, will continue their efforts to thwart the terrorist intentions of Hamas and all terrorist organizations, and to settle accounts with them everywhere in the world, on behalf of the security of the State of Israel and the Jewish people,” added the statement.
