Shin Bet Foiled Terrorist Kidnapping in Israel


The Shin Bet and Border Police foiled an attempt by an Islamic Jihad terrorist cell to kidnap an Israeli citizen from within Israel. The thwarted attack took place on January 1, but was under a gag order until Sunday.

The terrorist cell was arrested as members tried to make their way into Israel. They were carrying ropes, heavy tape, a knife, a fake gun and other equipment.
