JERUSALEM Israel uncovered a West Bank network of Hamas militants planning a series of large-scale attacks against Israelis in Jerusalem and other locations, the country’s domestic security agency said Thursday. The targets were to include Jerusalem’s soccer stadium and light rail system, and the militants were also instructed to abduct Israelis in the West Bank and abroad and carry out car bombings and other attacks, according to Shin Bet, the agency. The plot was exposed in an investigation sparked by two bombs that were set off by a timer in the West Bank in late August, the agency reported to local media and on its website.
