The Shin Bet (The Israel Security Agency) has uncovered a Palestinian plot to kidnap and hold hostage an Israeli citizen to be used as a negotiating asset. The plot was supposedly created while three of the five terrorist cell members were serving sentences together in an Israeli prison.

JPost reports:

The Shin Bet noted that the revelation came just weeks after Israel had reached an agreement with Palestinian prisoners ending a two-month long hunger strike, in which the prisoners had pledged to refrain from engaging in anti-Israel terror activity.

The Shin Bet said that the cell operated as part of a terrorist group called “Holy Freedom Fighters,” which split off from Fatah’s Al-Aqsa brigades in 2007.

The group has been involved in the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel as well as a number of roadside bomb attacks against IDF troops patrolling the Gaza Strip border. The Shin Bet said the group also served as something of a proxy for Hamas which provides it with financial and logistical support.

    Sounds like a good argument for mandatory swift executions of convicted terrorists.
