Israel Foils Double Suicide Bombing in Jerusalem

(Ynet News) Efrat Weiss - Israeli security authorities have foiled an Islamic Jihad double suicide bombing in Jerusalem.

Iyad Fuajara, 27, from Bethlehem, revealed that he was to lead suicide bombers into Jerusalem's Ramot neighborhood in order to carry out an attack "in a bus, synagogue, or coffee shop." Security officials said the latest terror plot demonstrates Islamic Jihad's unwillingness to submit to intra-Palestinian truce understandings and continued attempts to strike at targets inside Israel.
