Palestinian Islamic Jihad suicide bombing attacks in Jerusalem foiled

Issued on 02/09/2005 Type Article
Israeli security forces arrested Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist-operatives behind the suicide bombing attack at the Stage nightclub in Tel Aviv on February 25, 2005. Under interrogation they admitted that recently three attempts to infiltrate suicide bombers from the West Bank into Jerusalem had failed. The incident again shows that the Damascus-led PIJ continues its efforts to carry out mass terrorist attacks within Israel despite the current lull in the hostilities. Abu Mazen’s protests that the era of suicide bombers has ended notwithstanding, PIJ activity shows that suicide bombing attacks in Israel cities have not yet come to an end.
