Shin Bet says Hamas behind attack on checkpoint near Jerusalem

The Shin Bet intelligence service identifies the three slain terrorists who attacked a West Bank checkpoint just south of Jerusalem, wounding six people, saying they were Hamas members from Hebron.

Two of the three are identified as Abed el-Khader Kawasme, 26, the son of  Abdallah Kawasma the head of Hamas’s military wing in Hebron who was killed in 2003; Hassan Mamoun Qafisha, 28, a member of Hamas, whose uncle was a Hamas member expelled to Turkey in 2011.

The Shin Bet said it had not yet finalized the identification of the third terrorist, but Palestinian media identified him as Nasser Kawasme.
