Israel says Hamas assassination plot in Jerusalem thwarted

A court in Israel has charged three Palestinians with planning to kill an Israeli politician, kidnap soldiers and bomb Jerusalem's light railway.

The men belong to the militant group Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip.

Israel's internal security agency, which arrested the men, also found an explosive drone which they allegedly planned to use to attack the railway.

Israeli leaders have repeatedly stated Hamas as fomenting violence in Jerusalem.

Israeli-Palestinian tensions in the city have soared in recent weeks, following clashes at the funeral of Palestinian-American Al Jazeera journalist Sherine Abu Aqla.

The three Palestinians belonged to a five-man cell, all of whom come from occupied East Jerusalem and were arrested in April.
