Bat Yam Bus Bombers Captured

The Islamic Jihad terrorist moment has infiltrated into the heart of Israel and was involved in last month’s Bat Yam bus bombing near Tel Aviv. Those arrested include a Palestinian Authority policeman and Israeli Bedouin.

The Shin Bet has arrested a Palestinian Authority policeman, four Islamic Jihad terrorists and several Negev Bedouins for carrying out last month's Bat Yam bus bombing.

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) has lifted a gag order and revealed that security forces arrested 14 suspects, including four senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad members, in the bombing of a Bat Yam bus near Tel Aviv last month. Bat Yam Terorrist 1

The four Islamic Jihad terrorists are from Bethlehem, between Jerusalem and Gush Etzion, and Bedouin from the Negev, with Israeli citizenship, were among others who were arrested.

Two brothers belonging to the Islamic Jihad, Shahada Tamari (previously jailed in Israel), 24, and Hamadi Tamari, a Palestinian police officer (also previously jailed in Israel), 21, and Yousef Salamah, 22, made the remote-control bomb with four pounds of explosives and nails and screws to inflict maximum injuries.

The bomb was in a black bag that they gave to the fourth Islamic Jihad terrorist, Sami Harimi, 20, who took it with him to the southern Hevron Hills, where the security fence is relatively ineffective, with hundreds of Arabs bypassing it every day to enter Be’er Sheva and the coastal regions.

Screws, nails, ball bearings and other metal pieces that were inside the bomb to maximize the number of people killed.

Screws, nails ball bearings and other metal pieces that were inside the bomb to maximize the number of people injured and killed.

A Negev Bedouin, who carries Israeli citizenship, drove him to Jaffa. Harimi knew the Jaffa-Tel Aviv area well because he worked in a restaurant in Jaffa, without a permit.

The terrorists prayed in a mosque before Harimi boarded a public bus with the bag and then left it there when he got off at another stop.

He then called the mobile phone number that was attached to the bomb, setting it off.

The attack would have caused massive casualties if it had not been for three people who together saved many lives. A child told a passenger that someone had left a bag on the bus, and the passenger in turn was curious and noticed wires sticking out of the bag. He told the bus driver, who immediately cleared everyone off the bus.

Moments later, the bus blew up.

Security personnel arrested Harimi in Bethlehem several days after the attack, and he revealed that the Islamic Jihad terrorists were planning to stage a large-scale terrorist attack in Tel Aviv after the buys bombing.

The investigation by the Shin Bet and the subsequent arrests foiled a second attack, which could have caused a disaster because security personnel found an additional 45 pounds of explosive near the home of one of the Tamari brothers.

More arrests are expected.

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas said last week that he will demand that Israel release all terrorists,including those who might be arrested during John Kerry’s peace talk festival.

Kerry landed in Israel Thursday evening, less than six hours before the Shin Bet lifted the gag order on the arrests.

  3. Billy bob says:

    Obama already working to free them to ease tension with Iran. Bringing in recently released and convicted for aiding terrorists attorney for twin tower bombings to spearhead Obama campaign for immediate release.
    This is not a true story–yet

  4. Dorothy Andreassend says:

    John Kerry!! Pleased with yourself?????? How blind can you be or is there a hidden agenda which, actually is not so hidden. God bless Israel.

  5. Yaniv Baron says:

    It's not like these guys will get punished anyways.

  6. I guess Allah didn't answer their prayers at the mosque!!! And abyss demands their release!!! Is it just me or is their anyone else that can see the lunatics are running the White House, and they are demanding peace with the insane and mentally challenged Palestinians???

  7. Kjeld Hesselmann says:

    The terrorist assault shows at least two things. First of all Israel has a fifth column inside Israel proper. Next, the most ridiculous thing is to deliver once convicted murderers. Spare facilities and money and do away with the scumbags captured so everybody is eventually freed of the temptation to negotiate their release.

  8. ima says:

    If the Torah commandments are the law of Jews and Judaism is a
    Roadmap for civilization, a basis for the bill of rights, justice,independence,life, liberty , why are Obama and Kerry partnering with primeval jihad. As they undermine good and Israel they are endangering America,Europe and all humanity.Shame on these two who twist the Jewish people to surrender their victory and rebirth for an unnation with devious intentions proven again and again and again. These two who seek ad force murderers release are guilty of murder .

  9. Robin Erwood Watson says:

    good.

  10. Aryeh Sax says:

    RELEASE THEM AND SEND THEM HOME WITH KERRY

  11. Yechiel Baum says:

    how many times can you arrest and free the same murders?

    ab ASS will have to pay them AGAIN 50,000 dollars of American taxpayers money?

  12. Israel should release the terrorists express to the white house and let them do a job on the entire administration what a lesson that would be

  13. Myriam Obadia says:

    Bibi should tell Kerry that if he wants them free, he can take them with him to the US

  14. Myriam Obadia says:

    The agenda isn't even hidden anymore.

  15. Keren says:

    This kind of terroism wont rest as the mentality of these extremists is to drive the Jews into the sea. Its hopeless and its a case of acting not just defending

  16. Chaiya Eitan says:

    These barbarians I'm sure are being applauded by the whole #BDS crowd and all the other evil anti-Semites. There is no point in continuing these so-called 'negotiations' – actually there never was a point in holding them. Send them all to Jordan and they can call it whatever they want.

  17. You got the guys.Great and thank to '' hardly nobody was injured!

  18. David says:

    Is John Kerry related to Rabshekah by any chance

  19. Stephanie Taylor says:

    Let them try and escape then shoot them so that they can not be released to danger Israelis.

  20. Abbushuki says:

    Agree with Harding and Hecht. US should pay for damages with $ that the would have given to PA.
    But here’s a new twist everyone: Apply Islamic law: e.g. a thief loses a hand. For attempted murder Israel does not hang, but why not castration? THAT might serve as a real inhibitor. After all, what would they then do with all those virgins?
    You read it here first folks. Go for it!
    It’s called returning the terror and could work!

  21. Uzi Kattan says:

    What good is arresting Arab terrorists when Netanyahu releases them? They deserve to be executed and tied in pig skin.

  22. This is what peace talks bring. More terror and from the released terrorists and the Plo Police too!

  23. AC Stubbs says:

    Sec Kerry,
    You were saying that Israel is not trying hard enough?

  24. IT SEEMS LIKE YOU HAVE APTLY DESCRIBED THEIR GOD. HE IS A GOD OF WAR AND NOT OF PEACE.HE IS A GOD OF DEATH AND NOT OF LIFE. THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB SAYS, "CHOOSE LIFE." HOW VERY DIFFERENT.

  25. Fred Weiser says:

    Execute them

  26. Too bad Kerry was not on that bus.
