Israeli forces caught four Islamic Jihad militants on their way to perpetrate an attack in Haifa on Tuesday. The militants, from Jenin, had planned to stage a terrorist attack the same day as the suicide bombing in Jerusalem, for which Islamic Jihad and Hamas claimed responsibility. The security report released Thursday said interrogators learned that the attack had been planned by Bashar Shuhana, a Palestinian released from an Israeli prison in March, the Jerusalem Post reported.
