A security official spoke to Arutz Sheva on Thursday morning about the recent developments in Gaza and the possibility of another war breaking out.

According to the source, who insisted on anonymity, the recent events are part of a larger Hamas plan, which is expected to reach its peak on May 14.

“Hamas is interested in gradually fanning the flames, until May 14,” the source told Arutz Sheva. “And from there, they want to lead an escalation which will bring about another round of fighting in Gaza.”

In February, IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot predicted that a new conflict between Israel and the Hamas terror organization in Gaza was likely in 2018 resulting from Hamas’ mismanagement of the Gaza Strip and the correspondingly difficult humanitarian conditions. Hamas is attempting to turn the people’s attention away from the terror organization’s misuse of foreign aid and its rampant corruption by focusing on Israel.

In March, the Palestinian Authority (PA) official in charge of Gaza affairs told Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon (Kulanu) that beginning April 1, the PA would stop paying salaries to its employees in Gaza. Such a step, causing tens of thousands of Gaza workers to lose their income, could cause a humanitarian crisis in the Strip, making it all the more expedient for Hamas to target Israel.
