While Hamas still very much poses a threat to Israel from Gaza, the recent violence has been in the West Bank and Jerusalem. Today, The Times of Israel reports that the IDF has arrested the leader of Fatah's armed wing, who has directed terrorist attacks:

The IDF arrested the head of the Tanzim terrorist organization, a faction of Fatah, overnight Sunday, the Shin Bet security services announces...

Through the organization, Abu Lel worked to funnel money and direct shooting attacks against Israelis, the security services says in a statement.

The Shin Bet does not detail who the money is funneled to, but says “money was transferred in order to finance militant activities.”
