JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel said on Thursday it had foiled plans by Islamist group Hamas to attack Israelis in Jerusalem's largest soccer stadium, other parts of the city and the occupied West Bank, though Hamas said it had no information on the allegations.

Planning for attacks against Israeli targets, including Jerusalem's Teddy soccer stadium and the city's light railway, was carried out by Hamas officials in Turkey, Shin Bet added in a statement
Israel's Shin Bet security service said it had arrested 30 members of the group in September, some of whom had received weapons and explosives training from Hamas militants in Jordan and the Gaza Strip.
