Fatah Sniper Leaves Gaza for Eye Treatment to Better Shoot Jews
An indictment was filed Thursday with the Beersheba District Court against Muhammad Abu Amshah, a terror activist who planned a shooting attack in the Gaza Strip.
Abu Amshah, 32-year-old from Beit Hanoun, was given a humanitarian permit to leave the Gaza Strip in order to receive medical treatment in his eyes at a Ramallah hospital. However, in his Shin Bet interrogation, it became clear that the medical condition in his eyes was in the way of his scheme to shoot IDF forces patrolling along the Gaza Strip border fence.
The activist was arrested earlier this month by the Shin Bet and police upon leaving, as part of his permit, from the Erez Crossing to Ramallah. According to the Shin Bet, Abu Amshah admitted in his questioning that was intended to be a sniper within the framework of a planned attack by the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigadesagainst IDF forces near the Gaza border. He even underwent training exercises for the job. However an injury he sustained harmed his vision, and he planned to treat the injury prior to conducting the attack.
Note that he is a member of the Fatah terror group Al Aqsa Martyr’s Brigades, not Hamas. Fatah in Gaza is not able to work independently because of Hamas restrictions so it seems more than plausible that his visits to Ramallah were not only to the hospital but to his commanders in Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah terror organization.
