Israel Admits Jewish Terror Cells Operating

Israel Admits Jewish Terror Cells Operating in Occupied Territory

There are at least two Jewish terror cells operating in the occupied Palestinian territories, which are responsible for a series of attacks on Palestinian civilians over the past years, an Israeli defense official said Sunday.

The unnamed official told Israel Radio that the Jewish terror cells have killed eight Palestinians and injured several others in the past three years by planting roadside bombs and carrying out shooting attacks.

According to the official, there is also possibility that another terror cell is operating in the Palestinian territories, and each of the two or three cells has some three members expertly trained in terror operations.

Over the past two years, five bombs were planted in Palestinian cities and schools, with three found and “neutralized.”

In April 2002, two Israeli settlers, Shlomo Dvir, 26, and YardenMorag, 25, both from the illegal Israeli settlement of “Bat Ayin”, were apprehended as they tried to plant what police said a “powerful” bomb near a Palestinian girls school in occupied east Jerusalem.
