Israeli security forces have arrested a dangerous Palestinian dentist for carrying out a bomb attack last month that severely wounded an Israeli soldier—and this dentist had plans to inflict a lot more pain in the future. Dozens of explosive devices—including 56 small pipe bombs under development and a large pipe bomb—were seized. A press release by the Israel Security Agency said that the explosives “all were evaluated by experts as having deadly potential.”
The deadly dentist used a cellphone to operate the explosive device that wounded the soldier on May 10, with the ISA noting that the investigation had uncovered that the terrorist also “planned to commit an additional attack in the Maaleh Adumim area.”
The motive for the terrorist was clear—believing libelous Palestinian incitement against Israel, including claims they are threatening the Al-Aqsa Mosque atop the Temple Mount. The ISA said the terror dentist “began to plan the attacks in February 2016 in response—in his words—for ‘the desecration of Al Aqsa and Israeli attacks on Palestinian children.’”
Israel has repeatedly warned that Palestinian incitement is encouraging violence in the latest terror wave that began last year.
