A Hamas terror gang leader, recently captured by the Israel Defence Force in Tul Karem, is being charged with planning a bio-chemical attack against an Israeli target. Abbas al Sayad was in a Tel-Aviv court yesterday accused of trying to obtain a variety of chemicals, as well as a bottle of cyanide, to be used in a massive attack. Al Sayad is also linked to the Netanya Passover massacre that claimed the lives of 29 Israelis.
