Israeli security forces have recently discovered an Islamic Jihad terror cell which was planning attacks against Israeli soldiers, the Israel Defense Forces said Thursday, after a gag order was lifted in the case.
In a joint operation between the IDF and the Shin Bet, 10 Islamic Jihad militants were arrested near Jenin in recent months. According to the investigation, the military headquarters of the cell was communicating with the Islamic Jihad in Syria, who transferred the cell large sums of money to purchase weapons and to fund other operations.
Moreover, the terror cell also had ties with Islamic Jihad in Gaza and with the non-governmental organization "Soul of Jerusalem," which is sponsored by the Islamic Jihad and is outlawed by Israel.
