More on the Bethlehem jihad plot. From Israel National News, with thanks to wolynski, who wonders if the gentleman with terrorist ties who was trying to buy an ambulance and police cars in Florida may have had a similar plan:
Released for publication: Over the last few weeks, several terror cells have been uncovered and arrested in the Bethlehem region — preventing some of the most daring and potentially lethal attacks that Israel has known.
Among the planned attacks was an “ambulance bomb” — an ambulance driven by a suicide bomber laden with explosives into a crowded population center in Jerusalem.
The terror cells included official policemen of the Palestinian Authority, as well as members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
The central figure arrested was Muhammed Darawi, of the PA’s security agencies, who was behind the ambulance plot, shooting attacks, and attempts to dispatch suicide terrorists to Jerusalem.
His plan was to find a route through which the ambulance could be driven from Bethlehem to Jerusalem. He already had the suicide driver, the ambulance, and the explosives — but was unable to find an appropriate route.
