Terror Cell in Jerusalem Ready For Attacks

JERUSALEM – The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the declared military wing of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah organization, has formed a terrorist cell living in the vicinity of Jerusalem consisting of Israeli residents ready to carry out attacks within the Jewish state, according to a top Brigades leader speaking to WND.

“We have Israeli Arab brothers who are members of the Brigades who live in Israel and will make in the coming days and weeks shootings and suicide bombings,” said the Brigades leader, who spoke on the condition his name be withheld.

“Even in the case that there will be a cease-fire in Gaza, will keep attacking Israel. They will see the importance of our cells in Jerusalem with more attacks in the near future,” the Brigades leader said.

The claim follows a shooting attack this weekend in an eastern Jerusalem neighborhood targeting Israeli policemen and carried out by two Arab men who were permanent Israeli residents living in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood on Jerusalem’s periphery. On Saturday, the two opened fire at close range on an Israeli border policeman and a security guard. The policeman was hit in the chest and seriously wounded; the guard was moderately wounded. The Arab perpetrators were shot and killed by Israeli forces.

The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group claimed responsibility for the shooting.
