Gang of Terrorists Discovered

Download PDF for this date

A gang of West Bank terrorists was recently discovered before it carried out planned attacks against Israel. Israel Radio reported that the gang members were from Tulkarm, Kalkilya, Nablus and Bethlehem, who acted under orders from Amman.

The gang included a man trained in Afghanistan by Afghan rebels in the use of remote controlled explosives, and a 25-year-old woman who had been instructed to serve as a suicide bomber, driving an explosive-laden car and detonating it with herself in it in a crowded Israeli center.
