1. Global Jihad Cell Nabbed in Jerusalem
by Gil Ronen
The Shin Bet and Israel Police have uncovered a Global Jihad terror cell in eastern Jerusalem that was directed from Gaza and which was planning to carry out a murderous attack on a civilian bus.
A gag order on the investigation has been removed.
One of the terrorists involved was to carry out a suicide attack on a bus traveling from Jerusalem to Maaleh Adumim.
The plan was to fire at the bus’s tires first, in order to cause it to overturn. Then the terrorist was to murder the bus’s occupants at close range and await rescue forces, whom he would also fire at.
Another terrorist was to assist in carrying out a double suicide bombing at Jerusalem’s Binyanei Hauma Convention Center, as well as a bombing at the US Embassy in Tel Aviv.
These attacks were to be carried out by foreign terrorists who would arrive in Israel with forged Russian documents, disguised as tourists.
