As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
Israel security personnel have broken up another Hamas terrorist cell linked with one of more than 1,000 terrorists and security prisoners freed last year to bring home kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.
The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), IDF and police arrested Bachar Attalah Sa’ad, who lives near Ramallah, on charges of plotting to kidnap an Israeli soldier and shooting Jews.
His boss was Hasham Abed Hajaz, who had been sentenced to 10 life terms in prison for involvement in the murders of dozens of Israeli civilians and soldiers.
Hajaz was deported to Qatar, where he returned to terrorist activities even though he was not allowed to return to his home in Gaza.
He met with Sa’ad in Jordan earlier this year and taught him methods for shooting at Israelis, kidnapping a soldier and recruiting terrorists. Israeli authorities arrested him before he carried out plans to travel to Sudan for further terror training.
“He was supposed to receive four weapons from an unknown courier acting on behalf of Hajaz,” according to security officials.
