Islamic Jihad Network Reawakening in Northern SamariaTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Don't count on the Palestinian terrorists living up to any kind of peace plan over the long-haul.
Israeli intelligence sources see evidence that the military wing of the Islamic Jihad network in the northern West Bank has resumed planning major attacks.
Over the Passover holiday, the Shin Bet amassed more than 50 terror alerts.
All of March and most of April passed without Israelis being killed in terror attacks. Nonetheless, this is a success for a limited time only.
The current threat presented by Islamic Jihad operatives in Jenin and Tulkarm will require continued efforts against them, even before the disengagement.
But the day after is also in play: If the Jihad network strengthens itself in Jenin, in an area where the IDF refrains from operating after the withdrawals, it will pose a danger that is not limited to suicide attacks.
Various organizations in Jenin have been striving for months to manufacture Kassam rockets that would expose Afula and the Jezreel Valley to attack.
