New Revelations in Mike´s Place Bombing

New information revealed during the investigation into the April suicide bombing of Mike’s Place pub in Tel Aviv was made public for the first time last night (Monday). The two British terrorists, Assif Mahmoud Hanif, 22, and his accomplice Omar Khan Sharif, 27, were not affiliated with al-Qaeda, as was originally suspected, but with the Palestinian Authority-based Hamas. The General Security Service (GSS) reported that the terrorists made contact with members of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) before carrying out their attack. “The two terrorists were careful to base their presence in Judea and Samaria by forging links with members of the ISM,” the GSS report stated. Hanif and Sharif arrived in Israel via Jordan two weeks before the attack, although the GSS is still investigating how they succeeded in crossing the Allenby bridge without raising suspicions. The bombers then visited Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Hevron, Ramallah and Shechem, and twice went to Gaza. Their trips served to provide the two British terrorists with a cover and to allow them to carry out extensive reconnaissance in Israeli cities. Full Story
