The police caught a local terrorist cell
A cell of Arab Israelis from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Ras al-Amud involved in multiple instances of rock and Molotov cocktail throwing attacks has been arrested, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) announced Monday.
The suspects directed their attacks against security forces and Jewish civilians in Ras al-Amud near the Mount of Olives cemetery.
Islam Najar, 18, and Hamza Najar, 22, two brothers from Ras al-Amud were arrested by the Shin Bet in October. The interrogation of the pair uncovered that they were involved in a number of Molotov cocktail and stone-throwing attacks directed against security forces, the Shin Bet said. As part of the investigation 22-year-old Nader Nasser was also arrested as were two minors, aged 16 and 17.
The investigation uncovered that the two minors took part in the burning of an Egged bus in September in Ras al-Amud along with other members of the local terror infrastructure. According to the Shin Bet, the suspects described how they poured gasoline on the front of the bus and set it on fire after the driver fled the scene.
Arson is a very dangerous and reprehensible offense, and these filth should be locked away and barred from using matches for a long time.
