The Shin Bet has discovered a terrorist cell operating in the
Ramallah area, north of Jerusalem. Members of the cell were arrested
in June, but the affair was kept under wraps until Thursday.
The heads of the Hamas-affiliated cell were the top coordinators for
Hamas terrorism in the entire Binyamin region.
Two of those arrested have admitted to involvement in the infamous
lynch of two IDF reservists in the streets of Ramallah in 2000. The
reservists were savagely murdered by a mob after being arrested by
Palestinian Authority police.
Some of the killers were pictured shortly afterward smiling and
waving blood-covered hands. One of the smiling murderers was arrested
and jailed, but was later freed in exchange for captive soldier Gilad
The two confessed killers have been identified as Ibrahim Taufik
Maadi, 51, of Ramallah, and Yasser Ibrahim Mohammed Hatab, 40, of
Ramallah. They were indicted earlier this week by a Judea and Samaria
“The arrest of the two for involvement in the lynch that occurred in
2000 shows yet again that even after 12 years, security forces are
working to bring all those involved to justice,” a Shin Bet
spokesperson said. (IsraelNationalNews © 2011 08/09/12)
