IAF Retaliates Against Gaza Rocket Fire, Targets Hamas Training Camp

Monday, January 25th, 2016

IAF aircraft bombed a Hamas military training facility in central Gaza early Monday. The attack came in retaliation to a rocket attack late Sunday night.

Red Alert air raid sirens woke sleeping children and families in communities in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council, triggered by the rocket fire from Gaza.

In January alone, three rockets have been launched from Gaza and have hit Israeli territory. IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said, “Tonight, families in southern Israel were once again forced to find shelter, fleeing radical Islamic terrorism emanating from the Gaza Strip.

“Hamas is responsible and is accountable for all attacks from the Gaza Strip. The IDF will continue to operate and defend against those that undermine Israeli sovereignty while jeopardizing the safety and wellbeing of civilians.”

Palestinian Authority Intelligence Member Arrested by Shin Bet

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

Israeli security forces have arrested a three-member Arab terrorist cell in Samaria that included an employee of the Palestinian Authority intelligence service.

An elite military unit joined forces with the Shin Bet to capture two terrorists who attacked IDF soldiers four days ago.

One IDF soldier was wounded in a shootout that ensued in Samaria when his unit came under fire during an early-morning raid near Tulkarem, in the village of Din’aba.

The two Arab terrorists who were involved in the shootout managed to escape. The PA intelligence member later aided the pair with their escape and hiding the weapon, according to the Shin Bet.

Under questioning, “The operatives confessed to plotting and carrying out the shooting, and surrendered the weapon used in the attack,” the IDF said in a statement.

Ala’a Barqawi, 32, is an employee of the Palestinian Authority intelligence agency. According to the Shin Bet, he aided the other two detainees after they attacked the IDF unit, and hid the weapon they used in the shootout.

Amar Anbess, 27, has already served prison time in 2008 for terrorist activity. He and Samir a-Haq, 30, opened fire at the IDF soldiers who were operating in their village on January 20.

All three of the terrorists are residents of Din’aba. They were arraigned Sunday in military court.
