Israel Thwarts Jerusalem Mortar Attack
Amid continued Kassam rocket attacks from Gaza into Israel, a mortar attack on Jerusalem was averted when Israeli security forces acted on intelligence and apprehended a members of a Fatah terrorist cell who had military grade mortars, a launcher and, more troublingly, IDF uniforms and plans to launch the mortars into Israeli areas of Jerusalem. The number apprehended was not released nor was the name of the Fatah group, though the most active Fatah terrorist group is the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.
Since the unilateral Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, there have been over 450 Kassam rocket launches from Gaza into Israel.
What, then, lies ahead if Israel meets further demands that they withdraw from the West Bank? What reward will Israel reap?
