Jerusalem Bus Bomber Dead, Other Arrests Made

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

By Jesse Lempel/TPS

Jerusalem (TPS) – The Hamas operative who detonated a bomb on a Jerusalem bus this week has died in an Israeli hospital, the Israeli police confirmed on Thursday, partially lifting a gag order on the investigation. A police spokesperson further revealed that several other suspects have been arrested.

Abdel Hamid Abu Srour, a 19-year-old Hamas operative from the town of Beit Jala near Bethlehem, detonated an explosive device on the number 12 public bus in Jerusalem on Monday, injuring 20 people, including one seriously. Abu Srour died of his wounds on Wednesday in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. The Shin Bet (Israeli Security Agency) characterized the bombing as a “suicide attack.”

The police, Shin Bet, and IDF conducted extensive raids in Bethlehem on Tuesday, arresting multiple Hamas activists who are suspected of helping Abu Srour plan and carry out the terror attack.

Further details of the investigation remain under a gag order.

Following Abu Srour’s death on Wednesday evening, the Hamas terror organization claimed responsibility for the attack and called him a “martyr.” Spontaneous celebrations erupted in Bethlehem and Gaza, with people passing out candy in the streets to celebrate the bus bombing.

Four victims of the terror attack are being treated at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center. Three are in the intensive care unit on respirators, said Hadassah spokeswoman Hadar Elboim on Thursday.

“We will locate the men who created this bomb, we will reach the men who sent the bomber as well as the ones behind them,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after Monday’s terror attack. “We will settle the account with these terrorists.”

Forces Found New Hamas Terror Tunnel Reaching Into Israel [video]

Monday, April 18th, 2016

Security personnel have released for publication the fact that a new terrorist tunnel was discovered leading from Gaza well into Israeli territory.

The tunnel, dug after the completion of 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, was identified about a week ago in the area around the southern Israeli Jewish community of Holit.

“The IDF has uncovered and neutralized a Hamas terror tunnel in southern Israel,” the IDF Spokesperson said in a statement Monday morning.

The tunnel extended approximately 150 meters into Israel, emerging between Kerem Shalom and the site from which IDF soldier Gilad Shalim was abducted by Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror group in June 2006, sources said.

“This tunnel, the first to be found since Operation Protective Edge, was built by Hamas in order to infiltrate Israel and execute terror attacks against the people of the southern communities,” IDF Spokesperson Lt. Col. Peter Lerner noted in a sharply worded statement Monday morning. “The IDF will continue its counter terror efforts to uncover and neutralize Hamas’ offensive tunnels.

The tunnel was discovered late last week by IDF soldiers and Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) intelligence agents along with engineers who were using specialized technological equipmentk. The forces “uncovered and neutralized an offensive tunnel infiltrating Israel from the Gaza Strip,” Lerner said.

“The ugly truth is that Hamas continues to invest millions of dollars to build tunnels of terror and death,” the spokesman continued.

“The tunnel uncovered in Israel demonstrates once more Hamas’ warped priorities and continued commitment and investment in tools of violence. This tunnel exposes Hamas’ abhorrent intentions to attack the men, women and children of southern Israel.”

Residents of the Jewish communities in the Gaza Belt area have been deeply worried for months, pressuring defense officials to search the area around their homes and communities due to the digging noises they kept hearing under their floors.

IDF, Shin Bet Capture Accused Terrorist Murderer of Avraham Hasno, z”l

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

IDF soldiers from the elite Duvdevan unit and Israeli intelligence agents arrested the suspected killer of 55-year-old Avraham Hasno, z’l in a joint operation in the southern Hebron Hills.

They took the suspect into custody overnight from a location near the Arab village of Dahariya, near Yattir.

The suspect is accused of murdering Hasno in a terrorist vehicle hit-and-run attack on October 20, 2015 at the Fuar Junction near Hebron and Kiryat Arba, after he was ambushed in a rock-throwing roadblock at the site. He was run over twice by the Arab truck driver in mid-October.

Local Arab residents cheered and whistled while paramedics unsuccessfully tried to save his life.

The murderer was initially spared Israeli arrest by immediately turning to the Palestinian Authority, who took him into custody.

The suspect was detained (read: protected) until recently at the Palestinian Authority police station in Dahariya, according to a statement by the Shin Bet.

Subsequent to his release by the PA authorities several days ago, he was arrested by Israeli forces following much effort and intelligence work.

The detainee has been transferred to security personnel for further investigation and interrogation.
