    Israeli security forces have arrested a terrorist wanted for dozens of attacks, including an April 2008 incident in which he fired at the convoy of then Public Security Minister Avi Dichter. The terrorist is Ayoub Ayoub Ahmed Abu Karim, 22, of the Muazi neighborhood in Gaza. He was arrested last month but the matter was under a gag order until now. Abu Karim told interrogators that he had joined a Hamas affiliated group called the Defenders of Al Aqsa, which was formed in order to carry out attacks without implicating Hamas. The instructions for carrying out attacks came from Hamas,...

Security personnel peacefully escorted them out of the hall. Approximately a dozen students accused Dichter, former head of the Israel Security Agency, of torture and being responsible for...

    Minister Uzi Landau (Israel is Our Home) and MK Avi Dichter of opposition party Kadima both expressed support Thursday for a renewal of the "targeted killing" policy against terror chiefs. Dichter also called for striking civilian infrastructures in the terror haven. The "targeted killings" policy is a proactive anti-terror tactic in which the IDF does not wait for terrorists to act against Israel in order to strike at them. Rather, it uses its air superiority in order to pick off known terrorist leaders based on real-time intelligence regarding their whereabouts. Dichter, who is a former Head of the Shin Bet...
