Israel Roots Out Hamas Cell in Hevron, Foils Kidnapping Plot

The IDF and secret security personnel have arrested 20 Hamas terrorists in Hevron area, once again doing the work of the Palestinian Authority, constantly praised by the US for halting terror.

The Israeli army and the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet)  have arrested 20 Hamas terrorists in the Hevron area for trying to establish a regional headquarters, carry out terrorist attacks on Jewish soldiers and civilians and  kidnap a soldier.

Hamas terrorists planned to use the kidnap victim as barter to extract more terrorists being held in Israeli jails.

They were under the supervision of none other than Husam Badran, the Hamas terrorist who was one of more than 1,000 whom Israel freed more than a year ago in return for kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit. Badran was deported to Qatar, where he stayed in touch with the Hevron area cell.

Soldiers and security agents found a large stash of rifles in the raid, which took place after several months of hard investigative work.

The Palestinian Authority officially is supposed to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure in Judea and Samaria, and the Obama administration constantly praised Abbas for his efforts, which in fact are usually limited to handing out tickets for violations and arresting criminals who are not part of the Palestinian Authority.

Mainstream media have largely ignored the exposure of the Hamas cell so far, instead headlining a United Nations “fact-finding” report demanding that Israel expel all Jews from Judea and Samaria as well as half of Jerusalem.
