Palestinian Terrorists Incorporating Rat Poison in Attack Plans

RatPoison1A Palestinian terrorist planned to bomb the Jerusalem light rail last month with an explosive device containing poisonous material, Israeli police said Tuesday.

Ali Abu Hassan – a civil engineering student from a village northwest of Hebron – infiltrated Jerusalem on July 15 armed with three pipe bombs forming a large explosive. The terrorist doused nails and screws fitted on the explosive with rat poison to maximize the carnage.

Hassan researched how to make a bomb that would inflict “the most, and most effective, damage” and “even carried out test explosions with a number of bombs in order to check them before entering Israel,” said the Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security agency.
