IDF Captures Wanted Hamas Fugitive After Firefight in Jenin

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

After a complex military operation overnight that included a firefight lasting into Sunday morning in the Palestinian Arab city of Jenin, IDF soldiers captured a wanted Hamas terror fugitive and his brother.

The operation was carried out in cooperation with Israel’s Security Agency, the Shin Bet.

The IDF military forces were not deterred by the entrenched Hamas operative who had refused Saturday night to comply with a demand to surrender to arresting officers.

The fugitive, Kais a-Sa’adi, had barricaded himself in his home during arrest operations carried out by the IDF’s elite Duvdevan Unit.

Soldiers surrounded the house and fired a missile at the building.

Arab media reported that troops subsequently left the city without arresting the fugitive, but did arrest his brother. However, Israel’s Channel 10 television news reported that two suspects were taken into custody.

An M-16 assault rifle was also discovered, along with several homemade bombs (improvised explosive devices, or IEDs) at the home.

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

In a separate incident from the Beit Omar arrests last night, following an intelligence lead, police entered the village of Yatta near Hebron and discovered a small cache of bullets for pistols and M-16’s, M-16 weapons parts, and other battle gear.

According to the police, one suspect was arrested and brought in for interrogation to the Hebron station.

Police Nab PA Arabs with 4,000 Bullets Stolen from IDF

Saturday, September 5th, 2015

Israeli Border Police may have saved the lives of hundreds or even thousands of Israelis Friday night.

They stopped what appeared to them a suspicious Palestinian Authority taxicab in Highway 60 in Samaria, north of Jerusalem.

Their search of the vehicle uncovered a cache of approximately 4,000 bullets used in M-16 semi-automatic weapons.

Even worse, the ammunition had been stolen from the IDF.

Police arrested three Arabs, two of them from Jerusalem and one form the Palestinian Authority. It is not known if the Arabs were linked to crime or terror, but it can be assumed that 4,000 bullets in the hands of Palestinian Authority Arabs would not be used by Palestinian Authority security officers to do what the Oslo Accords commit them to do – root out terror.

It also can be assumed that since several Palestinian Authority security officers have been involved in terror attacks on Israelis, some of those bullets would have ended up in their hands.

The official statement that the taxi cab was viewed as “suspicious” may be politically correct language for another capture of terrorists and their weapons thanks to Israeli intelligence.

In any case, those 5,000 bullets will be back in the hands of the IDF, which has to investigate yet another theft that may have been an “inside job.”

And Israelis can thank the security services for having possibly saved their lives.
