Further cementing the increasingly prevalent impression that the Palestinian Authority is much more responsible than are the Hamas militants in control of Gaza, the terrorist group was implicated on Monday in a plan to mount attacks on Israeli civilians and to orchestrate a coup in the West Bank with the aim of toppling Mahmoud Abbass government.
The plot, planned by a Hamas wing headquartered in Turkey, centered on executing a series of mass casualty terror attacks in Israel and destabilizing the West Bank which would facilitate a military coup, The Jerusalem Post reported on Monday.
The Hamas infrastructure relied on support from cells in neighboring Jordan, and on couriers who delivered terrorist finances, totaling at least two million shekels, which were used to purchase weapons and homes that were used as hideouts, according to the investigation.
Ninety three Hamas members are in Israeli custody, and the Shin Bet has questioned 46 so far. Security forces plan to indict some 70 suspects. The investigation began in May, and is ongoing, security sources said.
The Jewish Press published more details on the scale of the planned terror attacks and the threat to pro-Abbas forces in the West Bank:
A Hamas leader in Turkey directed the terrorist cells, which received approximately $600,000 from sources in Jordan to buy homes to hide terrorists and to purchase weapons.

Have to think Abbas forces are about to take a dip in de Nile.
Hamas must be an organization filled with buffoons.
What Hamas lacks in intelligence and capability they make up in patience.
They will not disappear into the night. They need to be eradicated with extreme prejudice.
But but but-—I thot the Palis just had an election, the Hamases lost and agreed to centralize the Pali gummint. Could be Haniyeh hasn’t gotten the word yet since he’s been hiding out in Egypt while his neighbors take the beating. But the Israelis did turn his house into landfill so maybe he got a notice from the fire dept? Or maybe one of the neighbors wants to rent it for goat pasture?
This is an opportunity for Abbas. Can he back away from the annihilation of Israel as a policy tool and grow his country via free market economics and trade. Improving the poor conditions of the Palestinians through economic liberty would go a long way to tempering the radicals. They’ll still be there, but their welfare system won’t be needed.
Keep in mind that their welfare system is a recruiting tool for idiots and poor jihadis, but I repeat myself.
This must be the 43rd time Israel has saved first Arafart’s then Abbbas’ lives. The Paleostinian Authority is a false creation of Oslo. It is called the PA whne it was and still should be called the PLO, ooops, I forgot the “moderate” Paleostinians...
When are Islamists going to realize that it is The Will of Allah that they be smitten?
