Israel: Joint Operation Foils Suicide Bombing Attempt

In a joint IDF and ISA operation, five suspects were arrested during October-November of this year for planning to execute a suicide bombing in the Tel-Aviv area, as well as several other terror attacks against Israeli civilians.

According to the self-confessions of the perpetrators during the ISA investigation, Jenin resident Yasmin Sha’aban, planned to carry out a suicide attack using an explosive belt hidden under her clothing while disguised as a pregnant Israeli woman. Ms. Sha’ban and her cohorts – all from the Tulkarm area – intended to obtain an entry permit to Israel under false medical pretenses.
