Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Fatah's military wing has taken responsibility for Tuesday morning's terror attack at the Tapuach Junction. Also reported was that the attack was in revenge of the deaths of security prisoners Afafat Jaradat and Maysara Abu Hamdiya.
Palestinian Authority security sources have expressed their doubt regarding the authenticity of the announcement, but have not negated the possibility that the terror attack was carried out by the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. It is estimated that the terrorist worked alone in an attempt to clear his family's name after his brother was accused of collaborating with Israel. (Elior Levy)
