According to the Shin Bet, the plot was organized by Muhammad Bel, a terrorist from Gaza who has been incarcerated in Israel’s Eshel prison since 2008. Bel recruited two Palestinian terrorist prisoners in the West Bank, Ali Harub and Rajab Salah al-Din, with the purpose of recruiting Palestinians outside of prisoner to kidnap Israelis.

The plot idea was hatched by a Gaza terror group called the Holy Warriors Brigades.
