Hamas sends threatening SMS to Israelis

Jerusalem Post
Monday, March 24, 2014

VARIOUS Israeli citizens received on Saturday threatening text messages sent from anonymous numbers seemingly on behalf of terrorists from Hamas's military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades.

The messages included warnings that Hamas would conquer Israel, fire rockets into Israel and kidnap Israeli civilians, making reference to former IDF soldier Gilad Schalit who was abducted by Hamas terrorists in 2006.

"Al-qassam has chosen you to be The next Shalite .. Be Ready ," read one message in English.

"A warning to Zionists ... al-Qassam rockets are waiting with you ... if you want the life then leave from our country ," said another message in broken Hebrew.

Israel Radio reported that hundreds of Israelis received the messages sent from different mobile phones.
