Israel Indicts 3 Palestinians from Gaza for Planning Attack on Navy Vessel

(Ha'aretz) Amos Harel and Almog Ben Zikri - Israel has indicted three Palestinians from Gaza for plotting an attack on an Israeli Navy vessel, the Israel Security Agency said Wednesday. The group planned on abducting Israeli soldiers to use as bargaining chips after firing an anti-tank missile at the vessel. The ringleader was Amin Juma'a, 23, a member of Islamic Jihad. They were arrested on March 12 after their boats strayed from the permitted fishing zone off the Gaza coast. Their plan was to use one boat as a decoy to lure the Israeli vessel while a second boat would attack the ship with a missile and a third boat would abduct the soldiers on the damaged ship.
