Together with the Islamic Jihad terror group, the Brigades, the declared military wing of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party, is responsible for every suicide bombing in Israel the past two years, including a bombing last month in Eilat and an attack in Tel Aviv last April that killed eight Israelis and American teenager Daniel Wultz.
"There are martyrs on their way to Israeli cities. We will keep sending bombers until we infiltrate and carry out an attack," Abu Nasser, deputy commander of the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, told WND.
On Saturday night, Israel Defense Forces soldiers found two explosive devices weighing about 4 pounds each during a routine search of a Palestinian teen's belongings at a checkpoint just outside Nablus.
Israeli security officials said it was unclear whether the teen was supposed to transfer the devices to someone else or carry out a terror attack on his own.
Sources in the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades told WND the terror group sent the teen to infiltrate central Israel to carry out an attack.
Abu Nasser threatened his group would send more suicide bombers into Israel in the coming days.
He claimed his terror group was attempting attacks in response to Israeli renovation work near the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem to replace a ramp that provides access to a gate that lead to the Mount.
But Israeli security officials say the attack was likely an attempt by Fatah militants to focus attention on fighting Israel so Palestinian infighting doesn't torpedo a national unity agreement forged in Mecca last Thursday night.
