Palestinian Terror Cell in West Bank Plotted to Kidnap Israeli for Prisoner Swap


Israeli security forces have uncovered a West Bank terror cell that plotted to kidnap a resident of Har Bracha to bargain for freeing Palestinian prisoners, the Israel Security Agency announced Tuesday.

Sa’ad Husam Ahad Fakia, 30, and Malak Fatah Ismail Kadus, 25, from the village of Iraq Burin, near Nablus, were affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and Hamas.

The pair had prepared a place to hide the kidnap victim, as well as implements to restrain him. They also planned a stabbing attack and to steal an IDF soldier’s weapon.
