Hamas operatives got hold of a telephone number in the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council in Samaria this week and disseminated threatening text messages as part of the terror group’s increased psychological warfare against the Israeli public, Israel Hayom reported.
The text messages, which were sent to some 150,000 cellular phones, read, “Your government claimed yesterday (Wednesday) that it held its fire, but without accepting or implementing our conditions. It figured that we would rush to hold our fire as well. On the contrary, we rushed to strike every location in Israel. The Izzadin al-Qassam Brigades.” Some of the messages were sent under the username “TOISRAILIS.”
Also this week, Hamas members took over the Israeli Channel 10 television network, briefly interrupting a broadcast.
