Cleared for publication: Hamas man who planned kidnapping arrested

It has been cleared for publication that the Shin Bet security service arrested last month an operative in Hamas' armed wing on suspicion that he had plotted to kidnap an IDF soldier and carry out a suicide attack in the Eilat area.


According to a Shin Bet investigation, Mahmed Abu Adara and another Hamas operative gathered intelligence on IDF bases situated along the border with Egypt and on a number of civilian sites in Israel. The suspect also planned to fire anti-tank missiles towards Israeli targets along the border and coordinate the infiltration of a suicide bombing cell into Eilat. (Yoac Zitun)
