A senior Hamas commander in Tulkarm, Rami Abed Teikh, 26, was arrested Saturday night in a joint operation carried out by the IDF and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency).
Wanted by Israel since 2002, Teikh headed the cell that carried out the suicide bombing attack at Park Hotel in Netanya in March 2002. 22 people were killed and 100 injured in the attack, which prompted 'Operation Defense Shield' in the West Bank.
During 'Defense Shield', Teikh received assistance from the local civilian population in order to evade arrest. He wore women's clothing to move about undetected.
In recent years he was involved in recruiting activists and setting up a number of Hamas cells, whose members perpetrated scores of shooting and bomb attacks.
IDF combatants from the Egoz unit and the Nachshon Battalion surrounded a house in which Teikh was hiding and ordered him to surrender. Refusing to do so IDF soldiers fired an anti-tank rocket at the house, forcing Teikh to come out.
During Saturday's operation in Tulkarm, six other fugitives were arrested by security forces.
Elsewhere in the West Bank, two members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine were arrested in the Askal refugee camp in Nablus. Security forces believe the two were a bomber and a dispatcher in the midst of planning a suicide attack.
In El-Khader, west of Bethlehem, Judea and Samaria Police and IDF soldiers arrested three Palestinians, aged 25 to 16, who admitted to perpetrating eight bomb attacks and twenty counts of firebomb attacks at Israeli vehicles and security forces deployed in the area.
In Hebron a man handed over his wanted son at the District Coordination Office. Over the last three months 20 wanted young fugitives have been handed over to the IDF by their parents.
In the Gaza Strip shots were fired at an IDF post near Rafah. No one was injured and no damages were reported.
Islamic Jihad fugitive killed
Islamic Jihad fugitive Mahmoud Khmeil was shot and killed by IDF forces when he attempted to evade arrest Friday morning, fleeing from his home armed with a gun.
Troops from an elite naval commander unit surrounded his home in Kfar Raba'a southeast of Jenin in the West Bank, and called its inhabitants to surrender. Moments late they spotted Khmeil, 25, armed with a gun, attempting to flee. Soldiers opened fire, killing him.
Officials said that Khmeil, who is one of the heads of the Islamic Jihad in the Jenin region, was implicated in numerous attacks against Israeli civilians.
Khmeil is responsible for both executing and directing explosive device attacks and shooting attacks against Israeli security forces operating in the Kabatya region. Kamil recruited a vast number of operatives to the Islamic Jihad infrastructure in the Jenin region. He also acted as a central channel for the transfer and distribution of funds and of information donated from abroad for the purpose of terrorist activity.
In 2002 Khmeil recrutied a suicide bomber, who was caught by Israeli security forces, thwarting the attack. Khmeil was subsequently arrested by Palestinian security services and was sentenced to a prison term in a Palestinian prison in Jericho, but he escaped from a number of months ago.
Elsewhere in the West Bank, security forces arrested eight Palestinian fugitives in Nablus, villages north and southeast of Ramallah and a village north of Hebron.
In the Gaza Strip, three mortar shells were fired at an IDF post, at a settlement located in southern Gaza and another in northern Gaza. There were no reports of casualties or damage.
Shots were also fired towards the hothouses in Netzer Hazani in southern Gaza. No one was wounded in the attack.
I thought Yasser was dead.
They'll be back on the street again in the next prisoner exchange.
Someone said he looked a lot like Madeline Allbright.
Makes no difference, hang him with his own pantie hose.
Ok, I can understand the burka; but the red lacy push-up bra, sequined Thong and fish-net pantyhose? I think this man has more problems than just terrorism.
Good thing this fella doesn't live in the US. He'd be frisked everytime he tries to board a plane.
Freaking cowards as usual. These Arab terrorists talk crap but when they actually have to face men like the Marines or the IDF they cower behind women and children.
I always thought they were a little bit"that way"!Maybe Arafat did die of aids.
Help! I've been hurt! Get me a gaza strip!
I think what tipped them off was that he was wearing the
panties on his head.
Not if wearing a burka. :( I doubt many Islamic women are being frisked...we can't profile or appear to single out any certain segment of society. I heard that the screeners are really giving stewardesses a difficult time though.
Someone needs to tell Homeland Security and the airport screeners....you know who you're looking for, they DO fit a profile.....so DO YOUR JOB!
It's kind of a drag...when your baby don't love you.
I have been an unqualified supporter of Israel for over 40 years, but doubts are beginning to creep in about some of these claims...
Either stop reporting these things or provide proof beyond a verbal press release.
This reminds me of the dozens of instances where children are used as shields by terrorist gunmen, but nobody ever thinks of having a working camera at hand.
Here is an example of a terrorist using kids as cover:
It sounds like IDF is making some REAL progress.
With this kind of incredible work, cooperative pallies turning in their fugitive kids... and the wall moving along nicely...
We are seeing the pallie terrorists in their final death throes it seems.
hiding in women's burqua's?
So THAT is why the muzzies insist them in areas they are seeking to conquer... so that they can hide and move about carrying out their wicked acts, as women, instead of being murdered aka justifiably homicided... on sight.
Burqua's should be outlawed. Miniskirts and or form fitting pants... for all pallie women, to blazes with their religious convictions... NO MORE ISLAMIC HOLY CRAP... all holy mosques, aka muniitions centers... madrassas, terrorist training and recruitment centers... and burquas, terrrorist camoflage outfits used to hide killers, their belt bombs and other tools of the terror trade... should be illegal by international law.
I find it absolutely PERFECT that these scum dress as women to avoid being stopped in their acts of murder.
Rami Abed Teikh according to his religion should be stoned to death!
