Opporterrorism

The relative quiet here in Israel is not through want of trying, but rather due to the supreme efforts of our intelligence and military forces. Today, another suicide bombing was prevented and, as usual, the terrorists are using our own good faith gestures against us.

The General Security Service (Shin Bet) captured a suicide bomber and his driver on their way to perpetrate a suicide bombing in Rosh Ha’ayin on Monday.

The terrorist, Suleiman Abu Ravis, 20, from Balata, was sent on his mission by a Fatah Tanzim terror cell in Nablus.

The Tanzim Nablus cell tasked with driving the suicide bomber to his target, Zabr Abu Saris, 37, and Latifa Abu Draer, 47, both from Nablus, were also captured by security forces. The woman was caught with a bag containing the explosives belt to be used. Security officials told Israel Radio that the addition of the woman to the cell was meant to ease the cell’s passage into Israeli territory and expedite the attack, since Palestinian women are subject to less stringent security checks at Israeli roadblocks.

In the last attempted attack, the terrorists attempted to cross into Israel where there was no security fence. And in the past, we have seen explosives being hidden under babys’ beds, and weapons hidden in baby strollers.

This opportunism on the part of the terrorists necessitates tougher Israeli action to protect its citizens. It is just a shame that the world feels the need to constantly condemn them.
