In­creased West Bank ter­ror

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY ANSHEL PF­EF­FER

AS THE cease­fire in Gaza went into ef­fect this week, fears are grow­ing of a wave of ter­ror at­tacks in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

Avra­ham Vales, a 29-year-old mem­ber of the Toldot Aharon Chasidic sect, was mur­dered on Mon­day when a large me­chan­i­cal dig­ger driven by a Pales­tinian res­i­dent of East Jerusalem charged into a bus in Jerusalem. The dig­ger driver was shot dead by po­lice. Later that day, a man on a mo­tor­cy­cle shot a sol­dier wait­ing at a bus stop by Mount Sco­pus. The sol­dier was se­verely wounded and the shooter es­caped.

Ac­cord­ing to the ev­i­dence gath­ered by the Shin Bet, Husam Kawas­meh, the al­leged killer of teenagers Naf­tali Frenkel, Gi­lad Shaer and Eyal Yifrach, who was ar­rested three weeks ago, was the leader of a Ha­mas cell and re­ceived fund­ing from Ha­mas in Gaza.
