Possible stadium attacked stopped in Israel

Five members of Hamas were charged with planning to fire a rocket into a Jerusalem stadium during a soccer game.

According to a statement from Israel's security service, the Shin Bet, the two main suspects were identified as Mussa Hamada of East Jerusalem, and Bassem Omri, an Israeli citizen living in Beit Tzafafa.

Both are members of Hamas and the "Muslim Brothers" movement in Jerusalem, the Shin Bet said.

One of the possibilities they considered was possibly firing a missile into the soccer stadium in Jerusalem during a game. The stadium sits around 20,000 fans and is home to a team that has a strong right wing following.
