Hamas terrorist Omar Abu Sanina was released from Israeli jail last year, as part of the deal to free Gilad Shalit from Hamas captivity. Formerly a Fatah operative, Abu Sanina was sentenced to life in prison for murder. While in prison, he was recruited by Hamas agents, writes the new website Hamas Terorism 101, which is published by IDFBlog.com.
Recently, Abu Sanina sent a memory stick to his family in Judea and Samaria, detailing instructions for how to kidnap an Israeli soldier. Abu Sanina intended for the information to reach operatives who he had recruited, but the memory stick was captured by the Shin Bet. It included the following excerpts:
One should avoid hiding [the kidnapped soldier] in deserted places such as caves or forests, unless it’s their body or severed head. If dealing with a live person, which will need to be visited at least once a week (for supplying food etc.) it is best to hide them in a house, a farm, a workplace or similar.
Resources, weapons, and explosives should be prepared ahead of time. This with extreme caution and in the proper methods. It is possible to obtain weapons from the enemy, even if it necessitates the use of “cold” weaponry [knives, blades] first.
The first stage is to build a small team according to the orders, equipping its members with all the equipment, and training them in executing uncomplicated attacks.
We will be informed of the kidnapping only after its successful execution, and only through an encrypted channel. One must not talk openly or give away details, except in face-to-face meetings. We will officially announce the kidnapping via the Supreme Military Council.
