This week began with continued negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian officials in Egypt. On Monday, Israel’s Shin Bet reported that it had foiled a Hamas coup attempt in the West Bank. On Tuesday, the negotiations once again collapsed when Hamas fired a barrage of rockets into Israel. In the renewed violence, Israel has been able to successfully target top Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, including Raed al-Attar, Mohammed Abu Shamala, and Mohammed Barhoum. The condition of Mohammed Deif, Chief Commander of the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, remains unknown.
