The Commander of the Judea and Samaria Division, Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon, gave a briefing on Friday (January 7th) in which he addressed recent incidents in his region of command, including last week’s riot in Bil’in, and the arrest of senior Hamas terrorists in Hebron.
Included in the briefing is the IDF’s estimation that Jawaher Abu Rahma did not die because of the tear gas used to disperse the violent riot in Bil’in, but because of treatment she received at the Palestinian hospital.
Furthermore, Brig. Gen. Alon elaborated on the recent arrest of a Hamas terror cell in Hebron, the members of which were responsible for the death of four Israelis a few months ago, as well as the 2008 suicide bombing in Dimona which resulted in one death and ten casualties.
