Fatah claims fatal terrorist attack

A foreign worker from Bulgaria was killed in a terrorist shooting on the Yabed bypass road in northern Samaria on Sunday afternoon, less than a day after Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Fatah declared a three-month cease-fire. Kristo Radkov, 47, the first fatality after the hudna went into effect, was shot in the head and shoulder at close range as he drove a water truck on the road, which is currently under construction. Despite efforts by Magen David Adom medics to stabilize his condition, he succumbed to his wounds shortly after. Fatah’s Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades in Jenin claimed responsibility for the attack. “We do not agree with the cease-fire. This is our first action, this is the beginning,” it said in a statement. Shin Bet officials said 51 warnings of planned terrorist attacks had been received by the security establishment. While there was a slight decrease in the number of alerts, the officials warned it is too early to tell whether the cease-fire would succeed in quelling terrorist activities. Security officials said since the cease-fire went into effect on Sunday night the violence has continued. Full Story
