According to a joint statement by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the Shin Bet security agency, and the Israeli police, a three-member Hamas terror cell had purchased an RPG rocket launcher that they intended to use to fire at the foreign minister’s car.

The leader of the terrorist plot was 37-year-old Ibrahim Salim Muhammad al-Zir, a resident of the Harmela village near Bethlehem. Al-Zir has already been incarcerated in Israel for offenses related to involvement with Hamas.

The Judea Military Court indicted the members of the Hamas cell, which also included 35-year-old Ziad Salim Mahmoud al-Zir and 31-year-old Adnan Amin Mahmoud al-Zir, for conspiring to premeditated manslaughter and conspiring to trade in arms.

  • Kudos to the IDF and Shin Bet to save the life of foreign minister Lieberman. This sort of VIGILANCE is the most important thing Israelis can do at this time, when the perfidious powers that be abandon her, as always.
    Where are the men of moral rectitude and courage of yor, President Truman, President Johnson, etc. not this vile Hussein Obama who does not know right from wrong.
