Hamas terrorist pleads guilty

JERUSALEM, May 19 (JTA) — A Hamas terrorist pleaded guilty this week in an Israeli military court to 46 counts of murder resulting from suicide bombings he planned. Israel arrested Hassan Salameh after a wave of suicide bombings a year ago. He was accused of planning three of the four bombings — two on the number 18 bus in Jerusalem, and the other at a hitchhiking post near the coastal city of Ashkelon.
