Raids that targeted alleged members of a Hamas cell in the West Bank overnight Saturday, and killed five Palestinian suspects, prevented a major terror attack reminiscent of the Second Intifada, officials told Hebrew-language television networks. The cell planned to conduct a sequence of kidnappings and murders across the country, defense officials told Channel 13 news. The group did not, however, have the capability to commit suicide bombings, the network said.

Officials estimated to Channel 12 that the cell had also been planning a major attack in Jerusalem, similar to those seen during the violent uprising in the early 2000s, without elaborating further. The arrest operation began after the Shin Bet realized that the group was apparently set to carry out the attack imminently, the network said. The Israel Defense Forces believes some members of the Hamas cell are still on the loose. In total, some 20 suspected members of the cell have been arrested in recent days, according to the military.
