The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), with support from the Israel Defense Forces, recently broke up a Hamas terror cell in Hebron that was planning attacks against Israeli targets, Israel Hayom reported.

In one plot, the cell planned to attack an IDF position in the Hebron area with explosives and gunfire.

The cell was directed by Hamas terrorist operative who was released from an Israeli prison as part of the Gilad Shalit swap deal and deported to the Gaza Strip.

The members of the cell were arrested before they could carry out any of their plans.

The arrested suspects included Manjad Musa Diab Junidi, a 23-year-old resident of Hebron, who admitted to being in touch with Basel Heimuni, a Hamas terrorist operative in Gaza who was released in the Shalit deal.

Another arrested suspect was Muhammad Hassan Rajab Abu Sahidem, a 25-year-old resident of Hebron, who was recruited to the cell by Junidi. Sahidem admitted to building a pipe bomb with other members of the cell.

    So if this Hamas swine Junidi makes it out of an Israeli jail one more time, in what condition will he be? Justice dictates that he be forced to suffer what Shalit suffered. five years in solitary confinement. Let him get to know all the cochroaches in his cell on first name basis. He might find that he has more in common with them than he thinks.
