Hamas terrorist released in Shalit deal directing terror activities in Israel from Qatar
The IDF and the General Security Service have broken up an attempt to establish a Hamas terror cell in Hebron
. But here's the most curious part: The cell was being run by a terrorist in Qatar who was released as part of the terrorists for Gilad trade in October 2011.
The investigation concluded that the terrorists were assisted by
Hamas operatives abroad, who provided them with guidance and funding.
Their primary contact person abroad was Husam Badran, one of the
prisoners released in the exchange that secured the return of kidnapped
IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.
In 2004, Badran was sentenced to 17 years of imprisonment for his
involvement in the execution of terror attacks during the Second
Intifada. Upon his release in October 2011, he was exiled to Qatar.
Qatar needs to be reminded that the Mossad has long arms
