Just cleared for publication: General Security Services, with the aid of both the IDF and police, uncovered a terror cell that was responsible for much of the stone throwing and Molotov cocktail throwing at Israeli vehicles along Route 443 over the past months. Following subsequent investigation, security forces uncovered a Hamas terror cell that was planning actions against the IDF.
More than 15 Arabs from the PA village of Beit Ur al-Tahta have been arrested in recent months for throwing rocks and explosives, which caused, in some cases, significant properaty damages and bodily injuries as a result. A number of the Arabs arrested had already served time on similar charges. Upon further investigation, security forces found they had uncovered a Hamas terror cell that was in the process of planning attacks against the IDF.
