Israelis foil deadly terror attack
The culprits are Palestinians of Israeli citizenship.
Israeli security forces foiled a terrorist plot to denote a bomb at a shopping mall in Jerusalem. The attack was planned to occur on an upcoming Jewish holiday. In a joint operation by police and other security forces, two Israeli Arabs from the Shuafat camp and the Ras-El-Amud neighborhood in Jerusalem were arrested at the Mamila Mall near the Old City. Aged 22 and 25, the pair had been janitors at the mall. Following their September 1 arrest, they admitted to the charges. Media reports predicted that they would be indicted soon on charges of aiding the enemy, conspiring to commit a crime, and attempting to produce weapons.
The two terrorists were arrested for planning to transfer an explosive device from the Judea and Samaria region into Jerusalem. They were recruited by Hamdi Hasnin Hamdi Romana, a Hamas terrorist from Ramallah, earlier this year. While residing in the Muslim Palestinian majority region, they used their Israeli citizenship and privileges to aid in their plot. The terrorists were also planning to attack Israeli soldiers, and to produce rockets to be fired from Ramallah into Israel. and fire them from the Ramallah area into neighboring Israeli communities.
According to the police, the arrest reveals a high motivation on the part of Hamas to carry out terrorist attacks in Israel, and the threat posed by Arabs with Israeli identity cards who betray their country to carry out attacks. In March 2011, a bomb exploded at Benyanei Hauma in Jerusalem, and in November 2012, a bomb exploded on a bus in Tel Aviv. In both incidents, the bombs were produced by Hamas and planted by Israeli Arabs.
