Merry Chistmas from the Holy Land

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Office)
Tuesday, 25 December, 2007

In the past month, the IDF and the ISA uncovered a terrorist cell whose members are connected to the Hamas terrorist infrastructure in Nablus.  The terrorists admitted that they perpetrated several shooting attacks against Israeli targets in Nablus and in the surrounding areas, including the 24.10.07 shooting attack at Ariel junction, in which an Israeli civilian was lightly wounded and an IDF soldier was seriously wounded.  In addition, they admitted responsibility for the 7.1.05 shooting attack near Migdalim in which two IDF soldiers were killed (see below).

During the investigation, the members of the terrorist cell disclosed their involvement in the 24.10.07 attack, in which they opened fire from a passing vehicle, targeting an Israeli civilian and an IDF soldier at Ariel junction in Samaria.  In addition, the men divulged that several days previously, they carried out advance reconnaissance and observation activities of the area in which they intended to perpetrate the attack.  The planning stages included the purchase of a GMC vehicle with Israeli license plates for use during the attack.

Abdallah Kuka, 19, who drove the vehicle; Amin Kuka, 32; and A'mar Tanbur, 23, were the three Nablus terrorists who perpetrated the attack.  Other members of the terrorist cell involved in the attack were Riad Arafat, 34, who functioned as the reconnaissance observer, and Suhil Kuka, 21, who aided the cell after the attack was carried out.  On 24.10.07, the terrorists arrived at the Ariel junction bus stop and opened fire from short range at the waiting people.  One Israeli civilian was lightly wounded and one Israeli soldier was seriously wounded.  After the attack, the vehicle continued driving eastward and continued shooting at the vehicles traveling nearby, lightly wounding one Israeli civilian and damaging several vehicles. The terrorists escaped towards Jamma'in village, south of Nablus, where they set fire to the vehicle and continued their escape in a taxi that had been ordered in advance.

The members of the terrorist cell also admitted responsibility for the 7.1.05 shooting attack near Migdalim.  Amin Kuka and Suhil Kuka, dressed in IDF uniforms, stopped a vehicle and opened fire at the Israeli passengers inside.  Two IDF soldiers were killed in the attack and two other soldiers were lightly wounded.  St.-Sgt. Yosef Atia ( ), the soldier who drove the car, was killed, as was 2nd Lt. Ariel Buda ( ), who was severely wounded and died of his wounds on 15.10.05.  Terrorists Abdallah Kuka, Riad Arafat and Ala'a A'num were also involved in planning the attack.

The exposure of the terrorist cell and the incriminating evidence uncovered against it, indicate that despite its pretensions to the contrary, Hamas operatives are - at present - intensively planning to perpetrate attacks against Israelis in Judea, Samaria, the Gaza Strip, as well as in Israel proper.  Hamas's actions are manifested in the planning of terrorist attacks, and the maintaining of attack capability and organizational strength, all of which are designed to strengthen Hamas as the leader of Palestinian terrorism.
