A months long joint operation by Israel’s Shin Bet and the IDF has exposed an extensive terrorist network that the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine had established throughout Judea and Samaria.
The Judea and Samaria network operated under the leadership of senior PFLP members who directed the attacks that the various cells carried out.
Members of the PFLP are responsible for the terrorist bombing that killed Rina Shnerb this past August and left her father and brother seriously wounded.
The operation exposed the real and current danger posed by the PFLP. Had this operation not been successful, many Israeli lives would have been lost. This is an attempt that was stopped and reported on. Many attacks by various terror organizations have been planned and stopped through this type of vitally important cooperation. We, of course wish this was not necessary, but as it is we are thankful to the skilled men and women who are protecting Am Yisrael.
