GSS Captures Tunnel-Digging Israeli Arabs’ ISIS Cell

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

The Israeli General Security Services have announced on Thursday the capture of an ISIS cell in September made up of Israeli Arabs from the town of Tayibe. The capture marks a new low in the tenuous relationship between Israeli Arabs and their home country.

Tayibe is an Arab city (pop. 40,000) in central Israel, located about 7 miles east of Kfar Saba, part of the Arab Triangle region. During the 1948 War of Independence, Israeli forces captured the Tayibe fields, but not the town itself. Tayibe was then transferred to Israel in the 1949 ceasefire agreement with Jordan. In the process, the residents have claimed the state had taken away from them more than two thirds of their lands. Tayibe became a local council in 1952, and in 1990 was declared a city. The city is 100% Arab, 99.7% Muslim.

In 1996, Hapoel Tayibe F.C. became the first Israeli Arab soccer club to play in the top division. We mention this relatively obscure point because the ISIS cell were arrested after attempting to set on fire the local soccer stadium during the Muslim Holiday of the Sacrifice.

In fact, the three cell members, all Tayibe residents — Ibrahim a Halim Mahmoud Sheikh Yousef, 26, Mohammed Tamim a Qader Nashef, 32, and Amir a Hakim Hafez Gevara, 20 — were dyed in the wool ISIS fans, setting their crosshairs on activities they considered immoral and contrary to the principles of the Islamic State.

Amir Gevara was arrested back in April 2016 by Turkish security when he was attempting to cross the border into Syria, to join ISIS there. As soon as he returned to Israel Gevara was interrogated by the GSS and by police.

Ibrahim Sheikh Yousef was also planning to leave for Syria, for which task he designed and built a pedal powered glider, which he tested once. He was helped by Gevara.

The three cell members also planned to smuggle illegal weapons from Tulkarm, in preparation for the “day of judgement.” The began digging a tunnel from the PA area into Israel, for transporting the smuggled weapons.

The three men were indicted on Tuesday in Lod District Court.

6 Arabs Indicted Trying to Form ISIS Cell in Jerusalem

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Six Jerusalem Arabs were indicted for allegedly attempting to set up an ISIS cell in Israel, according to a police report.

The six residents of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat were identified and captured through a joint operation by the police and the Shabak.

According to the indictment, the six tried to set up the ISIS cell and commit a series of terror attacks, with the focus on Jerusalem as well as in Tel Aviv.

The cell began operating in 2015, until August 2016.

During that time, they tried to make contact and enlist ISIS, and they set up classes to learn ISIS ideology, where they met a few times a week –presumably to discuss the best way to cut off people’s heads and burn them alive.

Some of the members tried to travel to Syria to join the fighting.

About the Hamas Terror Cell That Murdered Rabbi Miki Mark

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

By Michael Bachner/TPS

Mount Hebron (TPS) – After almost a month of intense efforts by Israeli security forces, the Hamas terror cell that carried out the deadly July 1 drive-by shooting attack near Otniel was located in the village of Surif and raided by Israeli army troops, the Shin Bet revealed on Wednesday morning.

Mohammed Jabarah al-Faqih, the terrorist who shot and murdered Rabbi Michael Mark and injured his family members, fired upon the IDF troops. An IDF spokesperson said the force responded by shooting several anti-tank missiles at the building in which al-Faqih had barricaded himself. The forces demolished the house, killing the terrorist and injuring his wife and kids

IDF forces also found an assortment of weapons near him, including a Kalashnikov rifle and a homemade grenade.

Al-Faqih is a 29-year-old resident of Hebron, originally from the village of Dura in the Mount Hebron region. According to the Shin Bet he had been imprisoned previously for planning terror attacks as a member of the Islamic Jihad terror organization. He became a Hamas member during his incarceration.

Other members of the terror cell were arrested in the raid, including several of al-Faqih’s family members who had assisted him and hid him after he carried out the terror attack.

Mohammed Majid Omayra, 38, a member of the Palestinian Authority national security mechanism, was arrested on July 4 for participating in the attack. He admitted during interrogation to driving the car while al-Faqih fired the deadly shots at the Israeli vehicle. The car and weapon that were used in the attack were handed over to the Israeli security forces.

The killers brother, Sahib Al Faqih, was arrested and confessed to helping Mohammed evade Israeli security forces in addition to hiding the murder weapon. Their cousin Mouaz al-Faqih was arrested as well and admitted he let the terrorist sleep in his apartment after the attack. The Shin Bet said additional family members were arrested on similar suspicions, without going into further detail.

The IDF said an Arab woman was injured during the exchange of fire in Surif. She was taken to hospital in light condition.

The operation followed intensive efforts by the Israeli army, the Shin Bet and the Israeli police to gather intelligence and locate the terrorists.

The shoot out damaged an electric transmission tower line and resulted in power outages to the village and its surroundings. It also cut water supply to many Jewish communities in the Mount Hebron region for several hours. They were instructed to use water only for drinking purposes.

Hamas Terror Cell that Murdered Rabbi Mark Blown Up with Rockets [video]

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Now it can be revealed that a collaboration of Shabak, the IDF and Israel Police has exposed over the past few weeks a Hamas terror infrastructure that, among other things, carried out the Highway 60 murder of Rabbi Michael Mark Z”L and injured his family members on July 1, 2016 near the community of Otniel in Judea and Samaria. An overnight raid Tuesday that followed a lengthy manhunt resulted in the killing of the Mark murder perpetrator Mohammed Fakieh.

The arrest raid in the village of Tzurif near Hebron picked up Mohammed Ah Magid Amaira, who carried out the attack with Fakieh, and several other cell members, including several relatives, who provided support to the cell, including giving Fakieh et al shelter during the manhunt.

The driver of the terror cell who drove the car in the attack is a Palestinian Authority policeman.

The raid of the safe house where Fakieh was hiding was carried out by the IDF Etzion Division, as well as Shabak and Police. The terrorist opened fire on the force as it drew near, and in response the force shot several anti-tank rockets at the structure where he was hiding, then demolished the house using heavy machinery and killed the terrorist. They found a Kalashnikov sub-machine gun and an improvised grenade near the body.

An Arab woman who was injured during the raid was evacuated to hospital.

During the raid, a high power line near Tzurif was damaged which supplies electricity to the Gush Etzion area, and specifically to the regional water pumps. As a result, the Gush Etzion and Efrat water tanks are low, and residents have been asked to minimize their use of water until the electric company can fix the line.

Israeli Security Captures Shechem Cell of Arms Manufacturers and Dealers that Includes PA Officers

Monday, July 11th, 2016

A collaborative effort of the Shabak, IDF special forces unit Duvdevan and Israel Samaria police on Sunday night captured a cell of manufacturers and dealers of improvised weapons in Oreef Village near Shechem. The operation netted various types of improvised weapons, and four Lathes that were used to make the weapons.

The home-made weapons made in the Oreef facility were being sold in other parts of Judea and Samaria, and included Carlo (a simplified version of the Swedish Carl Gustav submachine-gun), the originally US-made M-16 rifles, and Uzis.

Four Lathes were captured

Security forces believe the four cell members, ages 24 to 46, collaborated with Israeli weapons dealers. Two of the arrested cell members, Assam Najam Sharif Safadi, 39, and Ali Najah Sharif Safadi, 41, are also members of the Palestinian Authority Intelligence Services.

Al Monitor columnist Shlomi Eldar cited a PA Arab source who told him, “You don’t need a lot of imagination, professional skill or resources to manufacture the Carlo. All you need is a piece of pipe. With a lathe, you can convert it into the barrel, chamber and firing pin of a rifle.”

There are two prototypes of the Carlo, one with a short barrel, the other with a long barrel, selling for between $770 and $4,400, depending on the reputation of the gun maker. Eldar cited another Arab source who told him that “a few hundred of these rifles are making the rounds in the territories,” and “can be found in quite a few homes, mainly for self-defense, but also just to boost people’s egos. In our society, if you don’t have a gun, you don’t count, and that’s especially true in the refugee camps. Even an old, unreliable Carlo is better than nothing.”

3 Doctors and a Nurse Arrested for Hizmeh Terror Bombing

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

This has got to be one of the strangest Arab terror cells captured to date in Israel.

On the eve of Israel’s Memorial Day a series of bombs exploded in the Hizme junction, seriously wounding an IDF officer.

The Shabak announced today that in a combined effort between the Shabak and the IDF’s Duvdevan unit, the terror cell which exploded the bombs has been captured. The cell had been planning additional attacks near Maale Adumim.

What is surprising is the makeup of the terror cell.

Three of the five Arab terrorists are dentists, one is a (male) nurse who works in a hospital (which wasn’t named). Two of the suspects had been arrested earlier which apparently led to the capture of the entire cell.

The terror suspects arrested in this raid were:

Dr. Samer Mahmoud Daoud al-Halabi, born in 1980, a resident of Abu Dis, a dentist – he placed and activated the bombs by cellphone.

Dr. Dagana Faiz Gamil Nabhan, born in 1980, a resident of the Kalandia, a dentist – he assisted al-Halabi.

Daoud Mahmoud Shehada al-Halabi, born in 1952, a resident of Abu Dis, a (male) nurse in a hospital – the father of the perpetrator.

Dr. Daoud Mahmud al-Halabi Shehadeh, born in 1974, a resident of Abu Dis, a dentist – the terrorist’s brother and his assistant in the bombing.

Shadi Mohamed Ahmed Muhsen, born in ’84, a resident of Abu Dis – the perpetrator’s cousin and an assistant in the bombing.

The surname al-Halabi indicates the family immigrated to Israel from Aleppo [Haleb], Syria.

The bombs were originally made and stored in one of the dental clinics in the village of Akav.

Security forces found 56 small pipe bombs, as well as one larger bomb, and two Molotov cocktails.

The professional assessment was that all the bombs were very lethal.

So much for the theory that well-educated, upper-middle class Muslims will not get involved in terror.

56 small but powerful pipe bombs.
