The enemies of Israel are many, and their attempted reach seems to stretch far, as well. The Jerusalem Post's Yonah Jeremy Bob reports that a Gazan terrorist who has aided Hamas has been charged with planning attacks on Jewish people in both Ukraine and Israel:

A Gazan who spent years living in Ukraine was indicted on Thursday in the Beersheba District Court for attempting to plan terror attacks against Jews in Ukraine and in Israel.

Sami Haviv, 30, was charged in an indictment filed by the Southern District Attorney's Office with several counts relating to terror activities, spying and falsifying documents. The terror plots, hatched from Ukraine between 2014-2016, included luring a high ranking IDF general to the Sinai to kidnap him and bring him to Hamas in Gaza or to attack a bus of Israeli tourists in Ukraine with gunfire or a bomb.

Haviv also assisted Hamas fighters in various ways during the 2008-9 Gaza war and in general from 2006-2010.

He was arrested while trying to get into Gaza through Israel from Jordan on January 31.
