JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Abd al-Fattah Hussein Ibrahim Gharusha,the terrorist responsible for the murder of Hallel Menachem and Yagel Yaakov Yaniv HyD 10 days ago, was released from an Israeli prison just months before the attack, despite the objections of intelligence officials, according to an Arutz Sheva report.
The 49-year-old Gharusha was eliminated Tuesday by IDF forces in Jenin, where he had fled after the Hawara murder. However Gharusha had been released from jail four months ago after being arrested and convicted of planning shooting attacks against Israeli soldiers.
Gharusha, a resident of Askar, a refugee camp near Shechem in Samaria, had armed one of his sons with a Carlo-style submachine gun for the planned shooting attack.
Gharusha served just under three years before being released in late 2022, despite warnings from intelligence and security officials, who noted that Gharusha had also planned attacks on Israeli civilians, including in Hawara where he eventually murdered the Yaniv brothers.
The Almagor Terror Victims Association on Wednesday called for an investigation into Gharusha’s release.
Almagor chairman Meir Eindor said his organization is lobbying for a probe “to examine why his prison term was not extended, despite the fact that they knew he was dangerous.”
“Someone was asleep at the wheel,” Eindor concluded.
After the Huwara attack, Gharusha fled to Jenin, hoping he would be able to evade Israeli security forces there better than in the Shechem area but Israeli commandos eliminated him Tuesday as well as five other terrorists hiding out with him.
Israel shall make it illegal to exchange terrorists for kidnapped soldiers.
They are only kidnapping soldiers to get terrorists released to kill again, a double-edged sword.
This is why court reform is needed.
Police and prosecutors need to be independent from each other as well
Funny how whever an intelligence official warns how dangerous Bibi is all you liberals ion here get all excited. Well what do you feel about not listenting to intelligence here as well?
