A Suicide Bomber Was Caught En Route To An Attack After His Name Was Accidentally Published

Seems an endless supply of scum looking to hook up with virgins in the afterlife
In its announcement taking responsibility for the terrorist attack at Ariel (27 October 2002), the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade mistakenly indicated that its operative Muhammad Shakir had carried out the attack at Ariel. It turns out that Shakir was not the suicide bomber involved in the Ariel attack, but he was planning to commit a different suicide attack in Israel. The erroneous announcement exposed Shakir, and early this morning IDF forces arrested him in Nablus.

Early this morning, IDF forces operating in Nablus arrested Muhammad Shakir, an activist in the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade who planned to carry out a suicide bombing. Shakir's name was published by accident when the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack at Ariel. The Al-Aqsa operatives mistakenly believed that Shakir had carried out the attack at Ariel, and their blunder exposed him. The security forces conducted a manhunt after him, and early this morning he was arrested together with 13 other wanted individuals.

The IDF arrested 14 wanted individuals during the night (28 October 2002)
