[ PIC 30/10/2012 – 12:51 PM ]

NAZARETH, (PIC)– The Israeli intelligence service, Shin Bet, claimed that it discovered during the last few months “an extensive organizational infrastructure” of Hamas in Ramallah and in villages in the West Bank.

According to Hebrew media reports; the intelligence service allowed on Monday afternoon publishing the news of the discovery of the organization, and the arrest of about thirty of its members in the city of Ramallah and the surrounding villages.

Shin Bet claimed that the extensive organizational infrastructure that was uncovered in Ramallah indicates the first effort made by Hamas in years to resume operations in the area and to restore a command center in the al-Khalil and Bethlehem regions

Hebrew media also reported that according to the Shin Bet, the command center was meant to promote the standing of Hamas in the West Bank in order to increase its chances of gaining power in future elections in the Palestinian Authority.

According to the Israeli intelligence service, the operatives cultivated Hamas cells in universities with funding and activities, and transferred funds to Hamas prisoners and their families.

The Shin Bet said that the command center was run by Murad Muhammad Khaled Abu Baha, with several others operating under his direction to manage the headquarters’ finances, oversee student and prisoner affairs and supervise activity in various areas of the West Bank.

The military court decided to keep the defendants in custody until the trial is over.
