Anatomy Of A Terror Attack
At least 2 Israelis have been killed and 12 injured in two separate suicide bombings this morning. These numbers may unfortunately rise over time, as it usually does in these situations.
Channel 10 has reported Palestinian security source as saying that the PA gave Israel warnings on the attacks.
How about dismantling the terrorist infrastructure like they obliged themselves to do when they signed on to the road map for peace, rather than this sick joke of a ceasefire, which has only served to strengthen the palestinian terrorist organizations committed to Israel’s destruction?
11:00AM: Police are scouring the area north of Tel Aviv, not far from where I work, for a third possible suicide bomber.
11:15AM: Did I mention that Egypt and the palestinians just recently accused Israel of undermining the road map?
11:30AM: Channel 10 reports that Israel may cancel the scheduled release of some 80 Palestinian prisoners following the suicide attacks. Sounds like a good idea, especially since there is a great chance that the prisoners will go back to their murdering ways.
11:40AM: According to Debka, a police roadblock has apprehended a white Skoda with Israeli plates entering Israel from Nablus at Yakir Junction outside of Rosh Ha’Ayin, the driver being suspected of dropping off the suicide bombers at the target sites.
11:45AM: Ha’aretz confirms this report.
12:40PM: Palestinian PM Mahmoud Abbas issues an equivocal condemnation of the suicide attacks, blaming “Israeli provocations” for them. Palestinian security chief, Mohammed Dahlan, says that he will not permit truce violations and that suicide bombings harm the Palestinian interest. No mention on his part of suicide bombing harming innocent people.
1:00PM: Police in Qalqilyah arrest a man suspected of driving the suicide bomber to Rosh Ha’ayin.
1.25PM: Despite Hamas denying knowledge of the group that perpetrated one or more of the attacks and expressing its commitment to the ceasefire, a Hamas cell from Nablus was responsible for the Ariel attack.
4:20PM: Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a group linked to Arafat, claims responsibility for the suicide bombing in Rosh Ha’Ayin.
