It was revealed in a military court today that Fatah was on the verge of carrying out a plan to assassinate Israeli diplomats in several foreign countries. The revelation comes on the heels of a report yesterday that Hamas terrorists planned to assassinate Knesset Member David Levy. In both cases, the arrest of the conspirators prevented the attacks.
In a plea bargain, the IDF Salim Military Court sentenced a Fatah Al-Aqsa Brigade terrorist to 18 years in prison for planning to assassinate Israel's ambassadors to Germany and China. The terrorist also admitted planning to poison water supplies and to blow up gas installations and a hotel in Israel.
