Report: IDF thwarted stab attack

Givati troop nabs suspect at Nablus internet-café, where he was allegedly instructed by Gaza Strip terror group to travel to central Israel and stab passerby, in bid to foil PA-Israel peace talks

The IDF and the Shin Bet arrested some two weeks ago in Nablus a Palestinian man in his 20s, most likely just as he was about to travel to a city in central Israel, where he was planning to perpetrate attacks with a knife. 


The arrest was made by an IDF Givati unit in an internet-café in Nablus, where the suspect allegedly received orders from his handlers who are members of a Gaza Strip terror group.

The suspect was taken to questioning and an indictment is expected to filed against him in the coming weeks. According to preliminary investigation, he was planning to stab a passerby.


The IDF suspects that the suspect was taking advantage of the relatively easy crossing between Israel and the West Bank during Ramadan.


Over the past month, forces in the West Bank were instructed to raise alertness, as security forces were concerned that terror attacks be perpetrated so as to hinder the resumption of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
