After accusing Israel of a conspiracy, a senior Hamas official, Saleh Al-Arouri, admitted finally that his group had carried out the “heroic” act of kidnapping and murdering Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrach and Gil-Ad Shear in the Hebron area last June. This crime triggered a major IDF offensive against Hamas on the West Bank. The terrorists retaliated with blanket rocket attacks on the Israeli population – up until the present.
