The Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) revealed on Tuesday that it recently uncovered and foiled a terrorist plot to kidnap Israeli citizens.

The group, identified as the “Holy Warriors Brigades,” was comprised of five Palestinians coordinating from Hebron and Gaza. The Shin Bet reasoned that the group sought to use the abducted Israelis as bargaining chips to obtain the release of Palestinian prisoners, including one of the plotters – Ibrahim Animat. Animat is serving a life sentence for raping and murdering an Israeli woman in 2010.

“The Holy Warriors Brigades” originated in Fatah’s military wing, al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, but splintered off in 2007. Since then, the group has been funded by Hamas. According to the Shin Bet, it is headed Assad Ibrahim abu Shariya, whose imprisoned brother, Omar, hatched the plan with fellow inmates that have since been released.

The Shin Bet stated that the group, which has been responsible for a number of terrorist attacks against Israelis in recent years, planned to abduct Israelis sometime in the coming weeks.

The revelation is particularly disturbing because Israel recently agreed to ease restrictions on Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails so that they would end their hunger strike. An explicit term of the agreement required the prisoners to sign a pledge to forswear terrorist activity.

    Thanks God for the Shin Bet, at least they were able to uncover the plan of the evil terrorist! Falsetinians or any other factions in Falsetine doesn't seem to have a mind of their own! The terrorist seems programmed like robots they have nothing, but hate and deceit against Israel, because they were indoctrinated since childhood to adulthood! The only way to stop their evilness , will be by stopping all the free money flowing into the terrorists hands! So with the money being appropriated to their leader! U.S. give too much money to the parasites should be telling Abbas to stop indoctrinating hatred and deceit to their peolple, otherwise no more money for them!
