Tanzim Terrorist Killed During Arrest Operation in Nablus
During a security forces arrest operation in Nablus on Monday night 14 wanted terrorists were arrested and one, Basem Hamis Mutztafa Abu-Suria, a wanted Tanzim terrorist, was killed. Basem Suria, 32, also known as "Kadafi", was one of Fadi Kapisha's assistants. Kapisha, a senior wanted terror-operative in Samaria, was killed by IDF forces in 2006.
Recently, Basem Suria established himself as one of the senior leaders of the Tanzim terror organization in Nablus. Basem Suria began his involvement with terror during Kapisha's time and was involved in the execution of dozens of shooting attacks, the detonation of explosive devices at IDF soldiers as well as planning suicide bombings against Israeli civilians. During this period, he developed the skills to make explosive materials and explosive devices and belts, which he also sold to other terrorist organizations in the city of Nablus.
Despite the amnesty agreement, Basem Suria continued his involvement in the terrorist organization and continued to carry hand grenades and a rifle.
In recent months, after he established himself as one of the leaders of the Tanzim organization, Basem Suria operated as a part of joint Hamas and Tanzim cells and even strengthened his ties with the Hezbollah terrorist organization in Lebanon.
