A Tanzim terrorist disguised as a woman was arrested during an IDF counter-terror operation in Jenin this week. The wanted terrorist, Div Hurani, worked as a reporter for Hizbullah's Al-Manar television station. Arutz-7's Haggai Huberman reports that Hurani was arrested together with Muntazar Abu-Alyon, 28, a wanted Al-Aksa Martyrs terrorist in the midst of planning imminent attacks on Jewish targets. Abu-Alyon, second-in-command in the Al-Aksa hierarchy in Jenin, was responsible for three murders in June 2003, dozens of other shooting attacks in the Jenin region, and the financing of several bomb attacks in Israeli cities. This morning, his boss, Ata Abu Rumeila, was captured in an IDF commando operation in Jenin.

The IDF shot and killed another Al-Aksa terrorist yesterday as he attempted to escape arrest by entering a PA municipal building.
