Levels of violence from terror groups in Gaza are gradually increasing, a senior military source told The Jerusalem Post over the weekend.

The source said he believed Hamas is not interested in an escalation with Israel at this time because of its internal Gazan interests, and that it was still restraining smaller terrorist groups from heating things up. At the same time, “we understand that Hamas is not doing all that it can to stop attacks.”

Less established Gazan terror factions are trying to launch terrorist attacks against Israel continuously, he added.
