The Shabak announced today that in a combined effort between the Shabak and the IDF's Duvdevan unit, the terror cell which exploded the bombs has been captured. The cell had been planning additional attacks near Maale Adumim.
What is surprising is the makeup of the terror cell.
Three of the five Arab terrorists are dentists, one is a (male) nurse who works in a hospital (which wasn't named). Two of the suspects had been arrested earlier which apparently led to the capture of the entire cell.
The terror suspects arrested in this raid were:
• Dr. Samer Mahmoud Daoud al-Halabi, born in 1980, a resident of Abu Dis, a dentist – he placed and activated the bombs by cellphone.
• Dr. Dagana Faiz Gamil Nabhan, born in 1980, a resident of the Kalandia, a dentist – he assisted al-Halabi.
• Daoud Mahmoud Shehada al-Halabi, born in 1952, a resident of Abu Dis, a (male) nurse in a hospital – the father of the perpetrator.
• Dr. Daoud Mahmud al-Halabi Shehadeh, born in 1974, a resident of Abu Dis, a dentist – the terrorist's brother and his assistant in the bombing.
• Shadi Mohamed Ahmed Muhsen, born in '84, a resident of Abu Dis – the perpetrator's cousin and an assistant in the bombing.
The surname al-Halabi indicates the family immigrated to Israel from Aleppo [Haleb], Syria.
The bombs were originally made and stored in one of the dental clinics in the village of Akav.
Security forces found 56 small pipe bombs, as well as one larger bomb, and two Molotov cocktails.
The professional assessment was that all the bombs were very lethal.
So much for the theory that well-educated, upper-middle class Muslims will not get involved in terror.
Arabs Riot, Temple Mount Closed to Jews [video] Watching the video is like watching an attack of zombies yelling "Allahu Akbar"
On Sunday morning, a group of Arab youths entered the Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem, some of them masked, and began to cause disruptions and harass the Jewish and non-Islamic visitors to the Jewish holy site.
Four of the Islamic instigators were arrested by police.
At around 10:30 AM, the Arab riots began to escalate with stone throwing and the police closed the Temple Mount to all Jewish visitors and tourists.
Arabs claim that between 2 to 5 Islamic rioters have been injured by the attempts by the police to restore order.
Watching the video is like a watching an attack of "Allahu Akbar" yelling zombies in a cheap horror flick.
On Friday, the Arabs on the Temple Mount, threw a ball down into the Kotel Plaza below, from a height of over 60 feet (19 meters). No one was hit or hurt by the ball.
I am praying for my new place to live in Jerusalem, this psalm coudn't hurt
When Hashem takes something from your grasp. He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.Concentrate on this sentence. "The will of Hashem will never take you where the Grace of Hashem will not protect you." Something good will happen to you today, something that you have been waiting to hear. Just 27 Words: 'Hashem our Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses and please watch over and heal my family in your name, Amen.' This prayer is so powerful.
