Fatah Returns to Terrorism

(Ha'aretz) Amos Harel, Nir Hasson, and Gideon Alon - Some elements of the Fatah military wing have recently resumed terror activities following Hamas' victory in the Palestinian elections. Col. Yuval Bezek, commander of the Samaria Brigade, said this week, "Since Fatah lost in the elections, people who belong to the organization have returned to terror attacks in full force." The head of the Military Intelligence research department, Brig.-Gen. Yossi Kupperwasser, told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Wednesday that the increase in attempts at carrying out terror attacks reflects a desire on the part of Islamic Jihad and the Fatah military wing "to challenge Hamas" and return to the forefront of terrorism targeting Israel. In Gaza, Al-Aqsa Brigades members have recently shown increasing involvement in firing Kassam rockets, along with Islamic Jihad.
