European officials said yesterday they had detained four men—three in Germany and one in the Netherlands—on suspicions of plotting terror attacks on Jewish sites across Europe. The suspects are believed to be members of Hamas—authorities said one person had been tasked with locating a stockpile of weapons that had been secretly stored in the past. Authorities said there was not a direct link with the Israel-Hamas war, as their investigation preceded Hamas' Oct. 7 attack in southern Israel.
Separately, at least 12 people were killed and 34 injured during a three-day raid by Israeli troops in the West Bank, Palestinian officials said. Israeli officials said they found multiple explosives labs.
Meanwhile, US officials reportedly warned Israel to limit civilian casualties as it pushed through southern Gaza, calling for the end of intense fighting.
