Israeli security says it has stopped Hamas plan to kill Foreign Minister Lieberman

Israel's Shin Bet domestic security service said Thursday that security forces had caught a Hamas group in the West Bank planning to assassinate Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

It said that suspects in custody “collected advance intelligence on the minister’s convoy,” on its journeys to and from his home in the West Bank settlement of Nokdim and sought to procure an RPG launcher with which to target his vehicle.
