Terrorist released for Gilad offered $60K to another 'Palestinian' to open fire on Israelis

A 'Palestinian' terrorist released as part of the 'terrorists for Gilad' trade offered another 'Palestinian' from Nablus (Shchem) $60,000 to open fire on Israeli soldiers and civilians. Fortunately, the 'Palestinian' from Nablus was caught by Israel's General Security Service (Shin Bet) before he could carry out the attack.
The suspect, Amir Brakhat, 24, had made the Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca, where he met Amir Dukan, a convicted terrorist from Nablus who had been released by Israel to Gaza, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) said.

Dukan offered Brakhat 60 thousand dollars in exchange for opening fire on Israeli traffic near Nablus, or hurling a grenade at the IDF checkpoint located in Hawara, the investigation revealed.

"Upon his return, Brakhat got in touch with Dukan and said he was prepared to carry out the attack. He tried to obtain a gun," the Shin Bet said.

"This investigation again illustrates the attempts by terrorist organizations to promote their activity in the West Bank, through the increased use of ex-prisoners released in the 'Schalit deal,'" the Shin Bet added.

"In this context, the Umrah is exploited for meetings on Saudi territory, for the passing of messages, ideas, and plans to carry out acts of terrorism," it said.

The security agency has observed an increase in the number of terror plots involving ex-security prisoners who are among 1200 former prisoners released by Israel in  2011 in exchange for the release of IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, who was being held captive in Gaza by Hamas.
Aren't you glad we did the 'terrorists for Gilad' trade? But wait, that's not all Mr. Dukan is up to.
The Shin Bet also announced on Wednesday that it arrested two men on suspicion of attempting to smuggle Hamas money earmarked for terrorism from Jordan to the West Bank. The money originated from the same Amir Dukan who is the center of the first investigation, the investigation found.

The men had hidden 10,000 Euros and 900 dollars in cigarette cartons.
What could go wrong?
