IDF Warns of ‘Terror Atmosphere’ in West Bank
Ynet – Nearly a year after the bombing of a Tel Aviv bus during Operation Pillar of Defense left 29 people injured, an anti-tank missile killed one of the terrorists who planned the attack. An operation launched Tuesday morning to arrest terror suspects in the Palestinian village of Naima, near Bilin in the West Bank, ended in the death of Islamic Jihad operative Mohammed Assi.
The IDF said that Assi had been on the run from IDF forces over the past year. Two of his associates were caught early Friday morning, while he escaped and sought refuge in a nearby cave.
