IDF Nabs Two Palestinian Terror Cells Linked to West Bank Attacks

(Jerusalem Post) Yaakov Lappin - Security forces uncovered two terror cells behind a series of attacks in the West Bank in recent weeks, the Israel Security Agency said on Wednesday. The first series of arrests targeted suspects from Husan and the Bethlehem area who hurled rocks at an Israeli vehicle on Route 375, seriously injuring an Israeli woman, Ziyona Kala. She was in intensive care for weeks after the attack, before regaining consciousness last month. Abd Aluhab Hamamra, 22, threw the rock that caused the injury. Four additional suspects will be charged for taking part in the attack. Another group of Palestinians from Kafr Bita, near Nablus, are under arrest for throwing rocks from a moving vehicle and for attempting to carry out shooting attacks. Hamza Abd Salah Khader, 22, a member of the Fatah Tanzim, confessed to being head of the cell and to opening fire on Israeli targets.
