Hamas, in the midst of rising tensions with Israel over the border with Gaza, is reportedly training its members to kidnap IDF soldiers.
Israel, just a few days ago, accused Hamas of destroying Gaza.
The terror group took over the small strip of land in 2007 and since, has used it as a launch point to attack Israel.
More about the latest Hamas training campaign, from the Algemeiner:
Amid heightened tensions on the Israel-Gaza border, the Hamas terrorist group is openly training its fighters to take over Israeli military posts, infiltrate border communities and kidnap IDF soldiers, the Hebrew news site Walla reported on Tuesday.
The IDF, according to Walla, is busily preparing for further Hamas-organized disturbances on the border in coming weeks, including this Friday. The past two Fridays have seen violent encounters on the border between Israeli troops and Palestinian rioters.
Hamas, the IDF believes, could use such clashes as cover to launch cross-border attacks.
Many of the several dozen rioters killed in recent weeks were members of terrorist organizations.
Based on social media monitoring, the IDF believes the main focus of rioters this Friday will be to hurl Molotov cocktails into Israeli territory. This has raised the concern that wheat fields on the Israeli side of the border fence could be set ablaze.
To prevent this, the IDF plans to use force to keep rioters out of throwing range of the border fence.
