Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
You say "the idea that 26 people were involved in this so-called assassination is quite implausible". Do you have any knowledge to base that on or is just a subjective guess? When monitoring suspects/targets, the number of 'watchers' needed is quite considerable. It would be upwards of half a dozen plus a control van if on street, because the suspect might go any one of a number of ways, meet a contact etc. Then you need three shifts, as people don't work 24 hours. There'd likely be 'plumbers' or whatever they're called these days to put in bugs and things, and controllers and the logistics guys. There's nothing particularly odd about the numbers. MI6 has been reported as having far larger squads involved in the surveillance and arrest of terrorist suspects.
