Palestinian arrests follow Tel Aviv bombingFebruary 26th, 2005 at 10:07 pm by Preston Taylor Holmes
Islamic Jihad, one of the many interchangeable islamic terrorist groups in the middle east has claimed responsibility for Friday night’s Tel Aviv bombing, which killed four and injured more than fifty.
Shortly after the attack, new Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas sent his special police out to find those responsible, resulting in three arrests.
“We will not allow anyone to sabotage the goals and ambitions of our people … We will bring them to justice,” Abbas, elected last month, told reporters.
Palestinian officials said three suspected Palestinian militants were arrested in the bomber’s village, Deir al-Ghoson, near Tulkarm. Israeli troops arrested five others there, including two brothers of the bomber, during a raid.
A senior Palestinian security official said inquiries indicated the hand of the Hizbollah guerrilla group, which denied any role and called the accusations a provocation by “the Zionist entity” (Israel).
Some of the crucial tools that the Palestinian police force used to make these groundbreaking arrests include these plastic handcuffs , this police badge , and this special plastic police helmet .
These novelty items are a clear demonstration that Abbas is serious about cracking down on Palestinian-based homicide bombers and their co-conspirators.
