Israel seizes suspected militant

Israeli forces have seized a man they say is a member of an Islamic Jihad militant cell responsible for the deaths of at least 16 Israelis since November. The man, Bader Aymouni, was detained in connection with a series of attacks including a November shooting spree in Hebron that left 12 Israelis dead and a December attack in which four students were killed. The Shin Bet security service said Mr Aymouni was the 17th person to be arrested who is linked with the cell. Three people, including alleged leader Diab Shweiki, are still at large. Israel has tried twice to assassinate Mr Shweiki, failing both times, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz. Suspects in custody have reportedly confessed to involvement in the two attacks, which they said were ordered from Syria, according to Israeli security sources. Full Story
