Islamic Jihad might (or might not) halt suicide bombings in Israel

The headline states "Islamic Jihad says will halt suicide bombings in Israel." The text says: "The Islamic Jihad may stop initiating suicide bombings inside Israel," which is a different story. They may, or they may not.

The Islamic Jihad may stop initiating suicide bombings inside Israel, according to Walid Abeidi, commander of the group's military wing, the al-Quds Brigades.
Most suicide bombers sent to Israel in the past few years were affiliated with the Islamic Jihad. In January 2007, an Islamic Jihad member carried out the terror attack in Eilat, in which three people were killed.  
A month later, a suicide bomber affiliated with the organization was caught in the city of Bat Yam. The group was also responsible for a terror attack in Tel Aviv's old central bus station on April 2006, in which 10 people were killed and dozens were injured.

Abeidi, also known as Abu al-Qassam, said that "the organization is considering halting the suicide bombings in order to help bring both sides, the Israelis and the Palestinians, to a mutual calm and ceasefire."
From "will" in the headline, to "may" in the lede, to "considering" in the body of the article. Quite a distance to travel!
