IDF SPOKESPERSON UPDATE
Wanted Tanzim operative arrested after returning to militant activity despite agreement
In a joint IDF, ISA and special Border Police force operation this evening in the village of Qalil, south of Nablus, the force arrested a wanted operative of the Tanzim terror organization, a Fatah offshoot.
8 pipe bombs, a rifle and a handgun were uncovered in the structure where the operative, Fares Natzer Hassin Abu Na'eem, was hiding. The bombs were detonated in a controlled manner by Border Police sappers.
The wanted operative, a 21 year-old resident of the village of Qalil, was involved in bombing and shooting attacks against IDF forces. Abu Na'eem was a party to the August 2007 agreement between the Palestinian Authority and
Israel, and had pledged to cease militant activity in exchange for being taken off the list of wanted operatives. Recent information received about Abu Na'eem indicated that he had returned to his militant activity, which
constitutes a severe violation of the agreement. As a result, it was decided to arrest him.
The IDF wishes to emphasize that those who signed the August 2007 agreement are valid subjects for intelligence tracking. Moreover, those who do not fulfill their commitments will be arrested.
