Dichter: Arrest of Jordan civilians thwarted Hezbollah, Hamas terror

Deputy Defense Minister Avi Dichter responded to a query by MK Tamar Zandberg ("Democratic Union") on the administrative detention of two Jordanian civilians who were recently transferred to the Jordanian authorities.

"To remove any doubt, their interrogation and continued detention in recent months has been in the clear interest of maintaining state security. The arrest of Hiba al-Lebadi, a Jordanian civilian holding a Palestinian ID card, has prevented Hezbollah terror activity in Israel, the arrest of Abdel Rahman, a Jordanian citizen, has thwarted Hamas terror activity in Israel," Dichter said.
