Hebron (TPS) – The Israeli Security Agency (Shin Bet) revealed on Sunday, January 10, that a Hamas terror cell was uncovered in November 2015 and that its members were arrested and indicted. The members had planned to shoot at passing Israeli cars on Route 35 in southern Judea, near Hebron.

The leader and organizer of the terror cell was 38-year-old Imad Muhammad Ali Kawasmeh from Hebron. He is the brother of Hussam Kawasmeh, who directed the June 2014 attack in which three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and murdered in Gush Etzion. Following the kidnapping, Operation Protective Edge in Gaza eventually took place to stop the incessant rocket fire on Israel.
